Hello from the Southern Adirondacks in upstate NY. I have been wanting a smoker for awhile and I guess I have been a good "boy" since Santa left a new Charbroil gas smoker under the tree! I loves smoked foods, always have but have never smoked anything. Been looking around online and have gotten a few recipes to try but wanted to find a forum. I am 39 years young married and have two children. Hobbies: I make my own maple syrup (around 50 gallons a year) I am an avid hunter and fisherman. I just started fishing Lake Ontario for King Salmon this summer and will fish for brown trout in the spring. I ice fish primarily for walleye.
