Hello all, I am a beginner smoker. I use the Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker (the big red minion shaped type) and have been smoking on and off for about 10 years. I did a wonderful loin a while back after reading this site and am looking forward to learning more and smoking alot more. I would love to learn to smoke rainbow trout because they taste good smoked and I don't really enjoy them fried much anymore, just too many bones. Also I am in salmon country so need to perfect that brine and smoke. I am doing my first Butt today so I decided to join.
