Hey All,



Been using the site here for awhile in aid of my smoking conquests, so thought I'd join up. Now that the summer is coming on, at least here in Houston, the smoker is getting a lot of use. I've competed in on BBQ cookoff so far, but looking forward to my next ones coming up. I'm big on ribs, love pulled pork, and brisket is like little slices of heaven. Look forward to the great advice, critiques and recipes for y'all.



This is my smoker. A New Braunfels Super Longhorn Deluxe. I modded it with a custom charcoal basket (see bottom pic) made by Klose BBQ Pits here in Houston.
