Hi all!

My name is Chris Carter and I've been lurking here for a while and finally joined.  I'm a chef by trade (I only cook for fun now) and my second true love, (my wife coming first) is food.  Ive been making my own sausage for many years but haven't smoked much since culinary arts school 20 years ago.

I fooled around last year with a water smoker and fell in love with smoking all over again.  My family gave me a   Brinkmann Smoke King Deluxe for Christmas and I can't wait to use it.  Giving a man in Pennsylvania a smoker for Christmas is like giving a kid a bike for Christmas.

It'll be warming up here in no time and I'll be smoking everything in sight (hide the cats, honey).  I've been doing lots of research and look forward to advice from all of the pros here.


Gone but not forgotten. RIP

Welcome Chris, I'm sure you will have a bunch of recipes to share with us all. I don't know how you can look at that new smoker & just let it sit until spring. Shovel a path out to it & fire it up.
