This is my first post and my first day as a member on this site. I am from Indiana.
I'm looking forward to learning from all of you, I previously had a smoker but several years ago I gave up on it as it was kicking my butt. This summer I found myself helping a friend in a smoking competition where we were handed a hard second to last place finish.
Being slightly over competitive, I purchased a smoker this summer in the hopes of getting better and practicing so I can avenge our loss.
One thing I did learn during that long day of the competition is that the "smoking, BBQing community is a great bunch and are as helpful and fun as any group of people out there. We had a blast all day long and ate a lot of great food (not surprised at our poor finish).
With that being said, my plan is to absorb as much info, secrets, tactics and recipes as I can.
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone, I plan to smoke a turkey for the occasion.
