That's right. This is my first entrance on to the forum. My name is Tom and, as my username suggests, I am a butcher by trade. I am a meat dept. manager for the biggest supermarket chain up here in the northeast. I live in Scituate RI which is about 15 minutes northwest of Providence. I purchased a Charbroil Silversmoker about 4 years ago and have been smoking ever since. Learned all I know from this web site and through trial and error (when it comes to smoking). Already knew about the meat! Anyways, just wanted to say hello and introduce myself!
