Well I am glad to be a part of the site. I hope I can learn from everyone and share my experience as well. I have been smoking for a few years now. Mostly bacon, which I feel I have nailed pretty well. We can't buy the store bought stuff anymore except the small market stuff that I use to make bacon jam!!! Right now I have a batch of kielbasa getting ready for the smoke tomorrow. We are also BIG fans of the Best of the West rib cookoff in Sparks, Nevada. Haven't missed one in 6 years.
