My name is Mike, I'm from central Illinois. I've been smoking for around 8 yrs. I do some competitions, and catering for friends and family. I use a 4-in-1 smoke hollow for small stuff, but mostly I use my 500 gal. Propane tank that was designed and built by my friend and I. I am a machinist by trade, and a volunteer firefighter. Just wanted to say hey and thanks to all the past help I've gotten from these pages, and all the future help I'm gonna be getting. Have a good one!
