Hello everyone, my name is Gerald and I'm pretty much an experienced newbie with smoking meats. I've been a "lurker" of this site for a while now and finally decided to join. I live in Charlotte, NC, (originally from SC) so I've been around a lot of great BBQ spots. My current set up is a modded Char-Griller Smoking Pro, but I'm ready to upgrade to either a Old Country Pecos smoker or either a Wrangler in the near future. I'm looking forward to learning even more about smoking meats as a member of this site!!!
