I have lots of you to thank, so thank you all. I researched the websight before I purchased my smokette elite and read lots of the recipes and lots of your questions and answers. My first round of ribs were perfect. My first pork butt was excellent. I am doing my first brisket this weekend. Prep it right, throw it in, shut the door, and leave it alone. I can do that. Thanks again, great forum. Big Ben, Nebraska.
