    I love to cook and usally can make whatever I want. I got this huge Brinkman pit smoker with an offset firebox. Used it a couple or 3 times with dismal results. I think its been 5 yrs since I tried it again and like before, the results were the same. grr

    But I found you guys and will give it a second or third time. I intend to get it to work.

    I work for a large construction co in eastern tenn as a network engineer. We own a bunch of Arby's restraunts, some golf courses, a bowling alley or two and some coal/timber mines in kentucky. I bought myself a bass boat and have started to do some more fishing (used to go all the time when I was younger). Anything else, feel free to ask.

    Thanks for providing a nice forum

    Hey TJ - glad to have you with us at SMF. To get the necessary basics for smoking meats I suggest signing up for the free, 5-day eCourse that's offered by the creator of this site. Between the stuff he provides you with in the eCourse, and the information on the site, your Brinkmann will be up and smoking in no time.

    Keep at it, you'll figure it out with practice.

    Also, don't go too fast. Start slow with some easier cuts of meat such as chicken, sausage, etc. and work your way up to the more complicated meats (pork butts, ribs, brisket, etc.).
