So if you are anything like me, you probably were sitting in front of the TV the first night BBQ Pitmasters debuted. It was the Mesquite episode, and wow was I intrigued. Truthfully I had no idea about BBQ Pitmasters, I was just flipping through the channels and stumbled upon it. I kid you not, an hour later I was at Lowes buying an El Cheapo Brinkmann smoker! The next day, I fired her up at an elevation of 5600 feet in the middle of a northern Utah Winter, What an absolute blast that was!! I think back to some of the things that I cooked then and wow have things progressed! From that point on I probably cooked 3 times a week, and being that it was so cold and I was cooking on such a cheap smoker, I was probably by far Kingsfords best customer in UT. So after watching the show a few more times, and cooking about 30 different things on the Brinkmann, I decided to follow in the footsteps of Harry Soo of Slap Yo Daddy BBQ and buy a Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker.
