Hi there folks! I'm Brian and have been reading post from SMF for a while now and finally decided to become a member. It seemed that anytime I had a question, I was able to answer it looking through the post here...much appreciated I might add. I have been cooking low and slow for about 5 years now and just moved (as of this past weekend) to a REC TEC Pellet Grill. Before that, i cooked on an ECB and Smokey Mountain vertical water smoker and decided it was time for an upgrade! I always say that you can never have too many hobbies (as much as the old lady might disagree). I'm into BBQ, Fishing, Hunting, Camping, Dirt Biking, Shooting, Reloading, Metal Detecting, Prospecting and anything that sounds like it might be fun! I live in Southern California (around Disneyland) and am looking forward to learning from others as well as providing help where i can. Cheers!
