Michigan Smoker


Joined Nov 24, 2010
Hi all,

Name is Brian, been a lurker for a while.  Was reading Michigan Sportsman and this site was highly recommended by Spanky over there so I decided to give it a go.  I have a 30" MES and a Brinkman kettle I use for smoking, doing mostly ribs, fish and pork.  This will be my first go today at a Brisket and I hope it turns out OK, going to have it for Thanksgiving.  Decided to make it a day early just in case I screw it up, can always fall back on the turkey.  Want to also try chicken and Turkey in the smoker, it's just I hate ruining food.  I have a lot of learning to do here and hope sometime in the future I can help someone like I have been helped by this site.
