Howdy from Beatrice Nebraska!! My name is Greg Nutsch I joined the forum last week. I enjoy cooking in general, and I've been grillin' different things for several years, and even tried with some success to smoke some things on the grill, but hadn't gotten a smoker until about year ago, when a friend kinda gave me some quick tips and turned me on to smoking stuff. I sure wish I'd been able to find this site back then..... I started with a Brinkmann charcoal smoker and had some pretty fair success with it. I've smoked variety of thinks including a 1/2 turkey, some chicken, a few beef roasts, a couple of pork roasts, and a lot of country style pork ribs (my favorite). I even tried some cheese in it (with some success) I have since purchased a LP gas smoker last week. (The wife finds it more acceptable if I can walk away for a while and spend some time with her.) First thing I did was get some big thick chops to smoke in it. I even did some cheese in it this weekend (that was quickly passed out to friends with great reviews) and devoured within our household. I can't wait to get a hold of some new ideas to try. Unfortunately time doesn't allow me to get on the forum too often, but I check in when I can. Thanks for putting up a site like this Jeff!!
