My name is Mark and I live in Arizona about an hour Southeast of Phoenix. I recently bought a Brinkman Smoke'N Pit for my first smoker. Just getting around to using it today. This is something that I've always wanted to do and I'm glad I finally am. I have a pork butt on it right now and it smells pretty delicious. Only time will tell.

Probably would have cooked faster on the concrete instead of the smoker today, was about 110* outside.
I would have loved some cloud cover today.
It turned out good, I think. Took a couple hours longer than I anticipated. I don't think the temp gauge is accurate on the smoker and I was cooking at a lower temperature than I thought.
Good to hear that it turned out good. I figure 2 hours per pound on butts, (Smoking @ 225* - 250*), and on some, that's not enough.
