Hello to all the backyard gourmets and the professional smoke masters out there. My name is Joe, I live in Salt Lake City, UT and I just got married. My groomsmen decided they had enjoyed enough of my BBQ, so they bought me a smoker. Brinkmann Trailmaster professional series and I am now learning how to cook all over again. While I do consider myself an old hand at grilling, I am wholly green when it comes to smoking. So now I will prostate myself before the horde, and humbly accept tips, tricks and secrets to mastering the art of smoking. So, first things first, I need to season my grill. I have ideas about how to proceed (similar to a dutch oven?) but any special tips would be welcomed. Give me the big info people! Oh and, thanks for welcoming me to the community.
