First time smoker here, received a Great Outdoors Smokey Mountain Smoker from my family for Christmas.  It's a propane fueled smoker.

Seasoned it up yesterday, and have thrown some country style pork ribs on today for a slow cook.

It's 27* here, with a light wind, and for the first hour regulating the temp to 225* was hell-to-pay.

I'm using wood from a granny smith apple tree that was in our property but died.

Dry rubbed the pork with a home-made jerk. [too many indredients to remember...lol]

Wanted a smoker for forever, and cannot wait for the slow cooked goodness.

Great forum!
