Cool Thanks.

Thanks for making me feel welcome. Amen to the food porn. Lol got a nice pork shoulder on the smoker right now over some applewood and an apple spice dry rub. And of course after a 24 hr marinade.

Hello there. Abalama, huh? Do you use any of that whits sauce? It's actually pretty good on YardBird.

As for tips...don't bet on the horses unless you have inside information.

OH! You mean BBQ tips. Well, don't panic when you're smoking a butt or a brisket and the temperature rise stalls out, or even begins to drop. It's a natural occurance that can be overcome or even eliminated by using the Texas Crutch. I'll let BigWheel 'splain the crutch since he resides in Texas.

Cool Nice

Here it is y'all. First attempt turned out great. Good crust, tender, and a lot of wonderful juice. The family had no complaints, or at least they couldn't say anything because they had the mouths full. Lol.

It's a Brinkmann Smoke and Grill. Wife got it for me as a starter. Already making plans for my first build.

I think a person should be forced to start on one of them crazy things. Know I did...so it bound to be right. How is the heat production holding up? You got any holes drilled in the firepan? If not poke a few in there and watch that puppy start walking and talking.

Yeah, I am in totally agreeing with BW on this one. Put a few holes in that pan to get better air flow. If you dont, your fire will just smother itself out. I had that trouble with my smaller Brinkmann. After that it should burn just fine.
