Just wanted to say hey to everyone. My name is John, and I live in Tennessee. Been smoking for about a year and a half. Currently using a charcoal Brinkmann, yep the cheapo, but its always performed well. I also like to grow peppers. Love hot and spicy foods. Stumbled across this site one day, and its been in the favorites list ever since. Thanks for all the info that everyone shares. Gotta love this site.
