Hello to all, I suppose at 71yrs. of age, I should refrain from taking on a new task that would tax my old brain and body, especially since my wife of 51yrs, has done all the cooking. One of my grandsons would tell you, that, I would have trouble boiling water and end up burning it! However, I recently purchased a charcoal grill and just ordered and picked up a Masterbuilt 30in. digital electric smoker. My wife and I live in East Tennessee, USA. and maybe the fresh mountain air has affected my senses, but I don't care! I look forward to soaking up some of the great information posted on this forum and I thank you for allowing me to do so. I have a lot to learn and, hopefully not, a short time to learn it!
