Thanks for reading my first post.  Have a MAK 2 star, and a little experience smoking a mean salmon on my Little Chief, ha ha.  I've hit up a tenderloin and a fish fillet on the MAK and they both turned out great.  Next I'm gonna do a pork butt, for some pulled pork.  Ive been reading the crap out of many forum posts on this subject, and have narrowed it down to a hickory smoke, Western Carolina Vinegar Sauce and a great sounding slaw.  I am still open to suggestions. Thanks again for reading.  RBB

Hey, welcome from the wet side of the mountains.  Sounds like you're off to a great start.  If you haven't already, be sure to sign up for the 5 day course.  No matter your experience level there's something there for you.  There's many other members here who live in the PNW so you'll be swamped soon enough with the Howdies!!!!!  Please remember if you have any questions at all, no matter how silly or stupid you might think it is, we don't operate that way.  If you asked, it's important to you and that makes it important to us. 

Now I gotta go see what a MAK looks like.  See, I learned something new today too.

Dave, you will be pleased to see MAK's made in the great NW, near Portland.  You can see the quality, and the customer service is out of this world.  RBB
