Hey everyone. I am brand new to smoking. I tried some smoked meat about two years ago made by my wifes grandfather. I went out and bought a used smoker at a yard sale for $20 but I never actually tried to smoke anything until just this weekend. Yesterday was my first attempt at smoking anything. I have lots of questions so you will be hearing from me quite a bit in the future I am sure. Thanks q3131a for your brine recipe in the smoking chicken post. It worked great!
