New to forum

Ladies and gents,

My name is John, and I am new to the forum.  I bought a large egg last Saturday, and I wanted to get cooking right away so I joined up!  Unfortunately I was unable to post until today, but I wanted to thank you all for the great info!

I poked around here to learn how to smoke a butt.  I'd never smoked one before.  I read up and got to work, buying an 8 lb butt on Sunday morning.  Well, following the good advice here, I put it in at 9:45 that night and 15 hrs later I had some dee-lish bbq waiting! 

Thanks again for the great info!  (I had a camera in my hands at one point but got distracted and then forgot to take a pic.  The only pic I have is of the empty foil pan after everybody left!)

    Welcome to the cult, sometimes the pic of the empty foil plan is the best evidence one can provide of a successful cook.
