Hey there thanks for adding me to your forum. I'm Scott and i'm from South Mississippi. I have been a 911 dispatcher for 20 years. I have three kids and new to smoking meats (although I'm a veteran barbecue eater as can be told by my waistline). At this time i don't have a very nice smoker all I have is a hand me down Brinkman smoke 'n grill that the charcoal pan has a rusted hole in the bottom but I plan on lining with foil to keep the coals in LOL. After some practice i hope to upgrade to a nicer model one day. Tuesday plan on pulling the two pork butts i have in the deep freeze and letting them thaw so I can smoke them Saturday. Hope to gain alot of info from your forum and I may have a question or two for the pros here. Thanks everyone and can't wait until Saturday. Until then I will be reading here.
