Hey Guys and Girls
Denny here, from south central PA. Finally gave in to a long time desire to do some smok'in. Got a Brinkman Smoke-n-pit, horizontal, off set fire box. I'm sure you're all familiar with them. Maybe not the best but something to start with. Got it "burnt in" and ready to rock but from what I can read I may make a few quick mods. Raise the grate in the fire box, baffle the heat opening in to the meat chamber, etc.
Now, not being the brightest bulb on the tree, my first real smoke will be ribs for about 20 folks on the 4th:-) Got the e-course and have been reading stuff for quite a while so I'm officially an arm chair expert with no real experience with bbq but eating it (I'm pretty good at that:-)
I am going to do a couple of smaller things this week before the 4th just to kind of get used to maintaining the temp, etc. Any and all advice gladly accepted. I have only one good leg and find it hard to out run unhappy diners:-)
