I found this hidden gem (forum) while I was attempting my first spare rib smoke! I'm newer to smoking, so I can't wait to learn everything you're willing to teach! I'm a barbecue enthusiastic and prefer kitchen gadgets to any gift. I live in Harrison Township (Michigan), and still own a home in Algonac. I'm working with a Brinkmann electric smoker, mainly because I can't afford a crazy rig, and don't have the mechanical inclination to build the offset smoker I imagine in my head. I'm drooling already just reading some of these posts!
