Came across this site while surfing looking for smoking information. I live in central Illinois{the land of high taxes} and I have had a large Big Green Egg smoker-grill for 1 year. I have smoked

pork butt, brisket, chicken, ribs{several times-still do not have a go to recipe yet}  and some venison.  I also am getting the E-cousre-never have enough info. I use mostly Royal Oak lump

charcoal and pecan wood. Anyway back to slicing my dried venison that I just made following Bearcarver`s  instructions-turned out very good.
