Hi all, Name is Rick, reside in Ontario Canada, was introduced to the world of smoked meat couple of years ago while in Corpus Christie Tx loved it all ( thanks to the Landmen group) I have a friend who smokes fish for me and smoked fish is my favorite. I was out shopping for a new BBQ when I found A brinkman Elite BBQ and Smoker. Well here I am. Now retired, cooking has become one of my favorite pass times, I will spend some time going through the forums and take my maiden voyage soon (as this snow storm is over and I can put the shovel away). Suggestions on what would be a good meat to start with for a first timer would be helpful.
