I have learned a lot from this awesome forum and its members in just a few days time:
1) got a great rub and sauce recipe from Jeff and a quick course on the basics to boot
2) found some spare rib pointers that I hope to use before next week
3) found out who made my old smoker- and what they are called today- original Okla Joe - now Horizon
4) found out how to contact Horizon and have ordered a cover, new upgraded wheels, and handles to do a much needed refurb on my 20 year old beast
5) found out what paints are being used by forum members
All this by using the search bar and just doing a little reading- thanks for making this place an easy - to - use site for us newbies.
