My name is Joe and we live in NW North Carolina. Folks say to get to our house you go all the way out to the boonies and then drive another 45 minutes. But we love it! I'm new to smoking but I already know I love it. We've started with a masterbuilt 40 inch stainless. Mainly because it was on sale for 200 bucks. Only time and cooking will tell how long we will use it or have to upgrade. From what I've read on here so far I can tell I have a lot to learn and a great place to learn from. Thanks in advance for any help and advice anyone can offer.
