Hello, I'm Pansuco! Long story short is that I got that name in Costa Rica...it means "fat belly"...and I embrace that!!! So like I said I am in Florida. North Florida to be exact. I have been smoking for about five years now and I am happy to say that I have finally purchased a nice smoker! As a teacher, I couldn't afford the Lang that I wanted, so I was lucky enough to find a guy to build one for me. It's not the best smoker out there, but it is roughly 598 times better than the one I had before! My other hobbies are wood working, working with the youth in my church and my Young Life kids, coaching soccer, and playing with my three month old daughter! And I guess the most important thing I could write on here is that I am a newbie with a love to smoke! The new smoker was made from an 80 gallon tank and it is reverse-flow...my first time with this! Ok, I have babbled enough...any questions...bring em! Pansuco!
