Hi guys and gals, I just wanted to introduce my self.  I'm so glad I found this site!  About 4 years ago I stopped at a garage sale when they were packing it up and they had a slightly used Chargriller, I asked him how much and he said $15 so I jumped on it.  That is where it all began. Now I recently purchased a Chargriller Duo with the SFB for smaller smokes and the convenience of propane for burgers and such.  I am always finding and excuse to smoke something now and thinking about doing a comp next summer.  Anyway great people on this site already tried a few new things I found on here.  BTW I purchased Jeff's Rub and sauce and it is amazingly good I get more complements now then ever before.  I got two Boston Butts on the smoker now so I better go check the temp.

Welcome from a fellow Montana Smoker. I am in Helena. If you are thinking about a comp, I have been trying to put a team together for the last two years. The guys have bailed on me the last minute both times. I really want to enter into the "Smokin in the Root" Comp next August. Let me know if you would be interested in teaming up. We could coordinate via e-mail etc. I will be in Billings a couple of times over the next month, gonna do some goose hunting with my bro. Good smokes to ya!

Sounds good to me coffee junkie.  I have two buddies that are just getting into it, they both are starting with electric smokers but they have also been bit by the bug!!  One in Missoula and one here in Billings.  I'm hoping they will move up to real wood and charcoal smokers soon, like taking the training wheels off

  I was hoping to do a comp in Absarokee next summer so we will see how serious we get about it.  Keep in touch, PM me if you want to meet up when your in Billings.

Yes, it gets very confusing on what to do 1st, pic's, pull or eat, I have that same problem, sometimes I'll eat before the pic's.

Anyway, smokin' is addicting
