My name's Tim and I live in Woodstock, GA - a suburb north of Atlanta. I'm very new to smokers and I just got my first 'real' smoker a couple days ago. I've got plenty of experience using a gas grill but have always wanted to try a real fire smoker. I picked up a Brinkmann Smoke'n Pit and did a few mods to it - fire box, chimney extension and a heat deflector.
I'm trying my hand at some smoked turkey legs right now and will have a true trial by fire this weekend as 10 of my friends descend on Atlanta to drink beer, smoke cigars and eat ribs - guess who's in charge of the ribs?
Thanks for the great forum, I look forward to getting to know everyone here.
