I live in Garland, TX and for the most part, I have grilled with gas. Mostly because it seemed easier to me. For the past couple of years, however, I have been wanting to do some smoking. I bought a Brinkmann vertical smoker and it is adequate for some things, but now I am looking to upgrade. I am excited to see what others have done and take any pointers or advice that any one has to offer. I will also share my triumphs as well when they happen. Let's do some smokin'!
