Hey everyone! New to smoking and found this forum while researching how to prepare a brisket. Successfully completed my first smoke last weekend, did a 15lb brisket and 7lb pork loin for my family(mom, dad, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, my wife and daughter as well as a few friends). I was pretty nervous cooking that much meat my first time, but it turned out great! Now I'm hooked... Will be doing beef jerky this weekend and probably dinner one night, not sure what to do for dinner yet. I have a smoke hollow lp smoker that was given to me by my uncle after he upgraded to a weber smoker. It works pretty well but I have trouble getting the temp any higher than 200 degrees loaded or unloaded. Bought a new regulator and hose and tried a different tank but no change. I might put a new burner assembly in it and see if that fixes my problem. My name is Corey, I'm 22 years old and live near Greenwood Indiana. I have a wife and a 3 year old daughter, and I'm pretty much addicted to hunting. Well I've rambled on enough for now, great forum!
