I just wanted to say thinks to everyone on this board. With the help on the mods to improve my smoker to just tips on the board. Today I did chicken for the first time this year and I was just shocked how much the mods lowered my cook time by over a hour and my chicken was so much better cooked nice and even. I have never had this. Also I did the can method and I have to say that added a great taste, and it was kind of funny to see two chickens standing in the smoker reminded me of the old Pepsi spot.

Also do to this board I have gone through over 50lbs now of lump coal and over 10lbs of wood just in a month. Last year I was lucky of I went through this much in 3-4 months but at least once every weekend the smoker is going.

My past post about the beef ribs I found the problem and that is that they do not have enough fat. So they dried out when I did the 1 in the 2-2-1 that I did. So next time I will do a 3-2 to cook them.

I just wanted to say thanks. There is so much I have learned and it is a little hard to thank it by person so I thought I would just do it in one shot.
Neal, I know I speak for for both Jeffs (tulsajeff and SoFlaQuer) and myself when I say that in anyway that your smoke sessions go from Okay to WOW and you walk away knowing a little bit more each time you visit and you grow in confidence in you abilities as a pitman; then Smoking Meat Forum is a success.
