Hey Everybody,

I'm new to the site found it looking for advice on smoking.  I just finished my first smoke this past weekend.  I just got my new brinkmann smoker and smoked a pork butt and beef brisket.  I used a dry rub with mesquite wood chunks and charcoal.  Learned a few lessons but overall turned out pretty good.  I'm looking forward to this weekend where I will try smoking something different.....thinking maybe some sausage.  Thanks to everybody who posted tips on other threads (too many to name by name).  Lots of good advice on this site. 

Thanks again and Happy Smoking....
