Greetings from Georgia. I just purchased the Perfect Flame 36" smoker a couple of days ago and am currently smoking my first batch. A pork tenderloin and a whole chicken; so far so good. Park is currently at 147* and chicken is about 165* after just over 5 hours. I spent 8+ years in Memphis and still miss the ribs so my personal quest is to try and replicate that here in my back yard.
