Well after a few days of roaming the site and reading up on the new and old post i started my first all night pork butt and brisket smoke at about 6pm last night. thanks to the knowledge i gained from everyone on the forum i am confident it will turn out alright. its 9:03am and the brisket is at 163 the pork butt is at 170 and they're looking gooooood.

i just recently got into smoking and im hooked. im from san diego california and besides my new hobby i love riding in the desert, fishing & hunting, even though ive only been hunting a couple of times and hangin with family and friends. i make my living as a machinst and been doing that since highschool, im 23 years old and will have plenty of time to perfect my que. well anyway just thought i'd do the whole introduction thing hopefully this pic i have works so i can show you what you've tought me.

thanks to everyone
