I've been lurking in the wings of this site for about a year. I'm old to smoking, but new to my CGSP. My son has had one for a few years and I got sold on it. The engineer in me said 'I can do better!'. Well, after a lot reading on numerous web sites, and about $100 and 30hrs of labor, I have a killer smoker. I finally joined because I may be able to help someone else and I always look forward to learning from others.
