Hi all. My name is Mark. I am from the seattle area in a city called Federal Way.

By trade I am a graphic designer, yes the guy that designs those annoying ads you see in magazines.

I started smoking with a LiL Chief, mainly for jerky and getting smoke flavor into meats, then moved onto a brinkman water smoker, although I loved that little brinkman I hated the fuss of the charcoal. Yesterday I made the plunge and bought the smokers vault, instantly I fell in love with it.

Spareribs are on sale here at Safeway, so I went and bought 30lbs, also two nice sized butts and some good chicken thighs. The wife loves it since I vacuumed sealed it all and have enough meat already cooked for the week.

I am hoping to learn from all of you pitmasters. When brisket goes on sale that will be my next endeavor..

Welcome Mark -

You can't go wrong shopping sales!

I cook most of the food for the week on the weekend and then just sides all week. Makes life easier. Your wife must be happy about that.

Have fun with the new smoker!
