Helloooo all fellow smokers. I have lurked here for a while and can't seem to get enough. The wealth of information available on here continually just blows me away. I live near Joplin Missouri and have been smoking all kinds of meat, poultry, and fish for well over 20 years now. Here is a list of a few favorite items that I seem to have going all the time : pulled pork, brisket, ribs (of course), brined turkey and chicken, bacon wrapped chicken livers, ABT's, smoked german potato salad, bacon wrapped meatloaf, cheese, pickled eggs, homemade bacon (of course) summer sausage and snack sticks. I have used all different smokers from stick burners and charcoal, but currently have settled on a Masterbuilt XL gasser. My gasser has been mostly stock with the addition of a better chip pan and water pan for about two years. I currently have it in the shop undergoing major surgery. Soon I will post all the changes and additions that I have done, many of which I got the idea for from this site. Hope to be talking with you all soon.
