Hello all, I'm new here, but I have been lurking and learning by reading the wealth of information in these forums. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to share tips, technique, recipes, smoker mods and anything else. I have learned a lot just by reading! I have plenty of experience with charcoal and propane grills. I've been using a small smoker box in the grill with indirect heat for light smoking, but I decided it was time to upgrade. I recently picked up an Old Smokey as I found the design simple and it seems to have plenty of opportunity for mods (I like to tinker). I also picked up a Maverick ET372 for temp monitoring. I'm doing my first pork shoulder this weekend. I'm going to try one of the rub recipes I found here and smoke with hickory, apple and pecan. I'll post the results in the proper forum afterward. Wish me luck... thanks!
