Hi all, my name is Bill, I live in Taylor, MI and I've been bitten by the Smoker Bug. A buddy of mine gave me an el Cheapo vertical and I've made some awesome food in it. I am in the process of making a homemade hybrid smoker but am on the mend from an errant broken drill bit, through thumb and bone. Yes, OUCH !!!! I've been surfing this site for quite some time and figured if I join, I could ask TONS of questions and hopefully someone here could answer some of them.
