I have just purchased my first smoker but, as my name suggests, I have lots of experience cooking outdoors with Dutch Ovens! I have cooked everything from cookies to pizza to multiple cobblers etc... in Dutch Ovens! I am a "retired" Boy Scout Leader with 14 years experience and learned about Dutch Ovens there. I stepped down as Committee Chairman after my son made Eagle Scout. I also cook on a grill as much as I can. I use both gas grills and charcoal! I am going to cook something in my new smoker this weekend, just not sure what will be the best thing to try first! I have a Landmann gas smoker. Any suggestions?? I plan on reading as much as I can from this site in the near future to learn about smoking meats and stuff!
