My name's Phil - I'm from Superior, WI. I've smoked ribs on my gas grill in the past. After coming across this site, I was interested in getting a smoker. I just bought a Master Built 2-door gas smoker. I tried smoking ribs the other day. I wanted to maintain a 225 temp; however, I had a heck of time regulating the temp. After researching on this site, I ordered a Bayou classic needle valve. I'm eager to try the valve and try out other recipes and techniques that I've been reading about on the sight. I happy to be aboard. PS - Love football go Vikes!!!
