First . . . I just completed the registration for this forum and I have to say it really sucked. If I hadn't wanted the information on this sight so much I would have surely bailed out. I am color blind, as are 1 in 20 adult males, and it took a dozen tries to finally find one of those security strings I could see enough of to get through. I wonder how many potential members are lost due to the same frustration. Probably 1 in 20. It does not have to be that difficult to be effective, ya know. I bought a used Brinkman Smoke-N-Pit at a yard sale last year and I just built and hung a firebox on the end of it. I have never smoked anything before and am looking forward to a whole new hobby.
