Well, I am Jeff and I live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I have owned an XL BGE for about 3 years or so and absolutely love it, although I have in no way used it to its potential yet! I also have another stand-up cabinet style (Lowes brand) propane smoker that has served me well to drag to work. It has recently passed away but has yet to have the proper burial in hopes that I can ressurect it! I sure wish that I would have found this site earlier as I pretty much ruined a big pork picnic yesterday. Anywho, I look forward to learning as much as I can from this obviously greatly informed group! Great site and keep up the awesome work here!
