I'm 30 years old from DeRidder, Louisiana. Start smoking with a cheap stick burner from Lowes. About two years ago my dad bought me a electric smoker. (and thats when all the excitement for smoking started for me) Now my Dad and I just bought a 60" Lane smoker. We want to try out some of these competitions. So, I am excited to start smoking on a Lane, but really excited to hang out with my Dad!!
