Hello, All. I am another newcomer to the site and also a newbie in smoking meat. I found this site via google after missing pork BBQ enough here in Michigan to try and make my own. (western KY style pork BBQ is my preference - Starns in Paducah or Lee's in Kevil if you are familiar with that area) I read up here on Jeff's tips and got a simple brinkman (electric, I am lazy) smoker and the first two boston butts did okay. (at least my Dad gave the thumbs up) I bought the rub recipe here since this site was so helpful so I will try that in a few weeks.
