    I've been lurking and learning here for almost a year and moreso since receiving a Brinkman electric water smoker for Father's Day. I even got the five day course from Jeff and check the www for other smoking info.

    So far I've made ribs twice, both turned out great, and a brisket, I'll talk about later.

    The info here is terrific and the folks are welcoming and glad to share.

    I may not post often, but I do appreciate Jeff for having this forum and everyone here for sharing their passion.

    Welcome George,

    Now that you're a member please ask lots of questions. The folks here are friendly, and will take care to give you answer.

    The fun part about all this is that you get to eat your mistakes. My mistakes were tasty even if they were not exactly what I was going for at the time.

    Take care, do good, and have fun!
