Hey all I'm new here from MN. My name is Duane orgianally from South Georgia. As for my experience with cooking, it has been a long one. Right out of H.S. I went into Cullinary School, and worked in the field for 15++ years. I have been profesionally cooking for the last 8 to 10 though. Smoking is acually rather new to me, most smoking we had done was direct heat on a regular grill.. which I guess would be considered smoking, but not in a real smoker. We would usally finnish the meat off in the oven after a few hours in the pit.
So now I have a Brenkmann knock off that was given to me new in the box. Just sat in my buddys garage for the last three years. I put it together last night, and plan on curing it and tossing in a brisket this morning. Don't have a whole brisket, but a four pond piece. Did a rub on her yesterday, so she has sat in the fridged over night all rubbed up and ready to go.

Good to be here..... _Duane

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.
