First post for me. I have been reading the forum for about 4 months. Bought my smoker 6 months ago. Its a Brinkman vertical smoker. I made a couple of basic mods to it. Replaced the handles and the charcoal pan with a stir fry pan from lowes. Got a few smokes under my belt, including baby backs, prime rib, whole chicken, St louis, pork lion, and pork shoulder + butt. Love this place. Next is the almighty FATTIE!!!
