Hello, everyone. I'm brand new to the forum though I've been visiting you guys for some time now. I'm 57 and about 3 or 4 years from retiring (depends on the price of gas, etc.) from a career in Maintenance in Public Education. I grew up outdoors, I would fish 24/7 if that were physically possible but I've grown up with grills and smokers. Lost some of that in my middle years but now I'm aiming at those leisure times and one of the things I will be doing is "smokin'!". My favorite food; from the garden, the field or the water. While I'm a descent "smoker", my expertize is a little behind and this is the best site on the Internet, I've found, for smokers to just spend time and share with other smokers. So I've signed up and hope to be adopted into this fine family of smoke infused epicureans. Just fancy works for those who know what the flip they're doing at the smoker. Right now, I'm limited to a gas fired grill and an electric water smoker but my wife knows first on my wish list is a side-box smoker, she knows where it is at, how much it costs and how to get it to our home. My birthday is in November but I expect to see the smoker on my deck before that. I'm the cook in the house and she loves pulled pork. Glad to be here. You guys have a tonnage of info to share and we appreciate it. Bob Martin Blackgnat on this site.
