    Hey guys,

    Just got my first smoker today from Bass Pro. It's a Landmann Smokey Mountain Series (propane - 6 racks). I've done a lot of grilling and deep frying, but have never smoked anything before. Planning on doing a Turkey and Ham for X-mas. Gonna need some help.

    I've been snooping around this site for a couple weeks and have found tons of great info. Can't wait to get started.

    Roll Tide!

    Hey welcome aboard! I also have the same smoker, except it under Landman instead of Great Outdoors. Works great!
