Hey, y'all, Stoney is a chubby little white terrier who loves REAL barbecue as much as his mama and daddy do. Here in the mid-south, I've been grillin for years, whenever it's not too hot, too cold, or too windy (it doesn't rain enough to mention). But now I am ready to start smokin with my new SMOKER! I'm getting a Brinkmann Smoke King Deluxe, which I hope should be fine for our needs. Here's my first question -- I have a good supply of hickory wood, but it was only cut about a month ago. Is that too green? Husband says he has some that's older, but I don't know how old. Can't tell you how exciting this all is!
