Well, I have hardly a thing to say other than I look forward to lots of great information, great recipies and many new ideas to try. I have a small homemade smoker which sits on an old RV type propane stove. I made it to smoke fish at the lake, therefore it is collaspable and simple. My first attempt at fish was So-So, but when I smoked a beef steak for a couple of hours, then finished it on the grill, well, I was hooked on trying everything and anything. I I hope to try this weekend and am torn between a brisket or a chicken. The chicken will probably win out because I would hate to waste a brisket while I am learning my smoker. (it is hard to destroy a chicken) If it all works well, then it will be off to the smoker store for a simple, but useful smoker that will handle the amounts that a family of 4 can use. Most of the time it is just 2 of us unless the children come out for a visit. I guess I have more to say than I thought. Best of all to all and LET'S GET SMOKIN!!!
