Name: Dave Smoker: Brinkmann R2D2 Style Heat: Electric I added a thermometer from Wal-Mart, because Ideal is not very specific. Acquired Entire rig including electric element for $10 at a garage sale last spring. Have successfully smoked Ribs, Pork Butt, Turkey, Brisket, and today I am smoking my first Ham for Easter using applewood. Love the site, its the only place I go on the internet for information about smoking. thanks everyone! p.s. Will post pictures of ham later.
