Well I guess I need to start off by saying that I'm a "smoker in training." I recently bought a Brinkmann Electric Smoker from an Estate sale. I wanted to try my hand at smoking meat and so far I believe that i'm doing a good job. I joined the forums to buff my sprits up and try to learn some new things. I might also see about trying to create my own smoker in the future. I hope to learn alot from the forums so that i can in turn put my input into it.
