Hello all. My name is Jack and I am a new smoker currently living in Spring Hill, TN. We moved here about a year ago from PA and I am loving the overall lack of snow! I have been doing some smoking on my gas grill with a smoker box, but have decided to move to a dedicated smoker. I recently purchased a Charcoal Brinkman from Home Depot. This particular model: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...egoryID=500439 After some reading I started to wonder if I should have started with an electric like this one: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...egoryID=500439 Anyway I came across this site while trying to make sure if I made the right choice or not. Sorry for the question in my introduction, if there is a better place to put it let me know and I will go there as well. I look forward to digging into the wealth of info on here and continuing to learn more!
