Thread Starter 
I've been smoking for just under a year after finally getting my wife to let me start. Now she can't stand places like "Woody's"
Using a Brinkmann Smoke 'n Pit
Currently living in Dayton, OH

My recommendation to newbies is don't start your first smoke with a 21 lb brisket.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
