My name is Joe and I live in Lewis Center, Ohio. Lewis Center is a bedroom community to Columbus. Columbus is the home of the Buckeyes! I'm a retired GI that has never used a smoker. I was visiting with my cousin in Florida and he used a Brinkman electric smoker while I was there. The results were outstanding! I decided to buy a smoker there and then. I now have the smoker (Char-Broil Electic Smoker) and don't know what to do with it? Found this site and registered. Am now reading HOW TO SMOKE MEAT by Jeff Phillips. I also plan to take the 5 day course. Any other suggestions? My first attempt with be with a pork loin roast. Wish me luck.
