Hi all,

New member here, been lurking for a while and decided to "show my face". We're supposed to reveal our skill level....Still Learning? Started with a Brinkman watersmoker 30 years ago. Ribs & whole chickens.

Did 8 pork butts for my kids HS graduation in a Baunsfeld. Downsized a bit to oval charcoal grill/smoker and bought a MES a few years ago that works suprisingly well. Considering we get 130 inches of snow up here, that E-lectric baby means I don't have to shovel snow off the deck for winter ribs Whoo-hoo! 

I've already learned a lot here. I mean I didn't know what a "fatty" was till I found SMF.

So much pork, so little time!

Welcome to SMF glad you joined us. Have fun and happy smoking
