    I've been a lurker for a few months enjoying the knowledge and info. Thanks.

    I 'inherited' a Brinkmann Pitmaster Deluxe and have been using it to grill on until recently. As a kid, my extended family smoked quite a bit of fish (lake trout and whitefish) and I loved it. Finally decided I needed to put the Brinkmann to its highest and best use -- smoking meat.

    So far I have done some ribs and a fatty with homemade venison breakfast sausage. I look foward to expanding these efforts under your collective tutelage to include more exotic fatties, briskets, butts, and fish.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks. I've read many of your posts with interest (and a bit of drool). I look foward to more.

    I live in Fridley but have a cabin near Cook. My family is originally from the Da Range.

    I'm going to have get better about remembering the camera. It wasn't until the fattie was nothing but a grease spot on a paper plate that I even thought about the camera. I've got to remember that smoked meat is not only a work of culinary art.

    Thanks for the info on Q view. I probably won't get anything smoked until Labor Day weekend, but I plan to go nuts.

    Not on Vermillion but just a couple lakes away. I've heard the area described as God's Country and couldn't agree more. One weekend a year just wouldn't be enough for me.

    Given your moniker I am guessing you are probably a deer hunter. Do you hunt near Preston or go elsewhere in MN?
