SF Bay Area Newbie

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Greetings everyone. I have been lurking around here for a few says since I got my Brinkmann Smoke N Pit for my birthday. I've been wanting a smoker for a while since I have been a passionate griller and all around cook for years. I am already looking to modify the Brinkmann.

I am lucky to have a father in law with a lot of land covered in fruit trees. I have nectarine and grape wood coming outta my ears. I have pretty been using nectarine and mesquite exclusively on my gas grill to add flavor, though I would love to try other woods for the smoker or the grill.

Thanks for being a great resource to new smokers like myself.
