Just starting out. I purchased a used wood smoker (Klose "backyard chef") about 6 months ago. At first I was really disappointed with my results. I was in too much of a hurry. After I did a little research my results started to improve. Go figure. Anyway, lots to learn to say the least. It's great to have such a nice resource at our disposal. My wife's name is Cathy and I am Steve. We live a little north of Seattle in Marysville, WA. Talk to you all later.
