              Thank you gentlemen. Here's my story. Lived in apartrments most of my life in NY, which means can't have a smoker, but I love BBQ. Moved to FL 11 years ago, more apts, still no smoker. Bought myself a house for my 51st birthday back in Nov. NOW I can finally have a smoker!! I bought a Camp Chef smoke pro DLX. I've run the thing on low smoke, high smoke, used smoke tubes with pellets and with wood chips. I'm not getting true bbq off the damn thing. So, I ordered an OKJ Longhorn reverse flow which will be here tomorrow. I may be able to get it assembled before I go to work. I'm very excited though.

                          Mine had gasket material on th firebox lid sealin perimeter, when I bought it, but it has largely long since burnt off...

                          Doesn't seem to make any difference, in my estimation...

                          Seams are caulked with Red RTV, but I haven't bothered doin any kinda 'insulatin', per se...

                          Reckon yer gonna find stickburnin to be fun, an flavouful...

                        Welcome to The Pitmaster Club! Love the username and the intro! We are all green at everything at some point, BBQ too. I was always great (I thought) at steaks & burgers, so hey BBQ can't be hard. Got a smoker. My first rack of ribs I cooked hot & fast like a long pork chop. My first pulled pork I took to 165 and tried pulling it. Needless to say I learned real quick I was WAY more green at BBQ than I thought I'd be. Before you know it you'll be teaching others though!

                        Since you’re new here, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

                        Also, it's very important that you:
                        1. Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your username in the top-right, then User Settings, then the Account tab. You currently cannot change your email on file with us yourself since it’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor if you’re a paying member. Don’t worry though, we’d be happy to change it for you, just click here to fill out an email change request.
                        2. Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important so you can receive special deals we occasionally work out for our members, receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner, which is open to all USA members. (Paid members get automatic monthly entry, whereas Free Trial members or general public must enter manually.) We’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us!

                        Hope to hear & see more from you!
