Hi everyone! I am glad to introduce myself to this great forum. My name is Matt and i live in Elk Grove, CA. I am very new to smoking, in fact I have not yet even used my smoker yet, but planning on doing that this Sunday! I love watching the food shows about smoking meat (BBQ Pitmasters, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, etc) and especially love EATING it! I am sure I will be using this form for a lot of questions and advice. I have not yet decided what to smoke this Sunday and wondered if anyone had some advice on what I should start with, for a first-timer. It will just be me and a buddy eating it. I have a Brinkmann Upright Charcoal Smoker, but it seems to be an upgraded version, as the trays, grills, guages, etc seem to be very high quality. Anyway, thanks so much!
