I'm Paul and live near Grants Pass, Or.. Been Q'ing for more years than I can remember but mainly on charcoal grills. Favorite was the Kingsford Oval which everybody loved my ribs, briskets and roasts. I would load the coals (mostly mesquite) on one side and do the ribs on the other side. basting a lot.. My dad gave me a texas horizontal smoker which I never did like so gave it back.. I recently bought a MasterBuilt Dual door, dual fuel and have been having a ball with it. Whole new experience.. . Perused the forums and put a 8" cast pan in on top of the "stock" pan.. Use several different chunks and chips and it works great. Checked the thermo and it is within 10 degrees which works for me.. It didn't leak much smoke from the doors and I can keep it at 225 with TBS pretty easy.. Out doing some SL style ribs today so thought I would have a brew and introduce myself . I am retired from the IT business.
Really appreciate all your comments and recommendations.. Really have helped.. I don't post much (not really a verbose guy)
Anyway,, Hi.. Glad I am here..
