Newbie here! I am from North Alabama and have recently gotten into BBQ. I have a Brinkman Gourmet with a few Mods from here. I also have a Great Outdoors Vertical Charcoal smoker with Mods too. I have enjoyed the site so far and learned a good bit. I have smoked a few butts ,chicken and ABTs so far. I am almost ready to venture to brisket but need to complete my Brinkman Mods before doing that. I have allot of BBQ books that I enjoy reading but seeing Qveiw and this site has helped more. WAR EAGLE!
