    Been grilling all my life, first with my dad, then myself for many, many years, but by no means an expert.  Went back to lump a couple of years ago with a BGE clone and love the control and flavor I get with lump.  Just got a Smoke Daddy generator and have been cold smoking salmon and a duck ham this week.  Picked up a cheap electric smoker and will mod it for the Smoke Daddy, that way I can smoke & grill at the same time. I have made some wonderful brisket on the clone, using cheaper fire controllers.  Was about to jump for a BBQ Guru when I decided to go back to a dedicated smoker instead.  Time will tell, but I have been getting excellent results cold smoking on the clone & expect the same from the electric.

    We live south of San Antonio on a small acreage, just missed the oil fields though :-( ,  Wife is already retired & I will in the next 5 years or so.  I'm an installation engineer for one of the major medical suppliers.  I'm looking forward to many, many years of smoke.
