Hello, My name is Rio and I am from Florida. I just purchased me a Oklahoma Joe Highlander smoker. I am pretty decent at smoking foods but I don't have it down to a science. I only the thermometer that have came with previous smokers too measure the temp of my smokers. This time around I want to do things a little different because I want to enter into a bbq completion in March. It is a beginner level competition and I am trying to learn all the tips and tricks that I can. I don't know anybody in my area so I figured I would join the Smokingmeatforum to learn all that I can. Looking forward to drawing knowledge from the people here. Thanks and have a nice day.
