Hello from MN with the lakes open already. The ice went off the lake by my house yesterday, almost a month earlier than normal. Have been reading the forum for a while now, and thought it was time to join. I have been using a propane smoker for a few years now, but looking to get into pellets. I still consider myself a noob by any account but look forward to trying more things and getting better in the process. Thank you for the great forum.
