    If I'm not smokin' anything, I'm planning the next one! Which is usually not more than 24-48hrs away.

    Welcome killmeh, Read Read Read....and do the E-Course I just finished chapter 4 and it explains a lot about smoking  ...  ...

    I smoke every week or so. I suggest thermometers too knowing the temp is critical IMO.
