Hi All, My name is Frank. I'm from Long Island, and I've never smoked anything until today. For my 40th B-Day I was given a Perfect Flame vertical(propane) smoker. So, today I smoked (2) racks of baby back ribs and (4) meatloafs, and used mesquite (soaked) wood chips. It was definitely a learning experience and had so much fun in the process. During my smoke, I had a few questions that I posted, and got some helpful immediate responses. You guys rule! Anyway, everything came out out great, and I'm looking forward to many more great smokes!
