    Hi all,

    I'm Jeff, and I live in Ballwin, MO (right outside of St. Louis). I've been reading this forum for a few years, but today I made my first post (after having to repair my MES). Figured I'd better do the proper thing and hit Roll Call.

    I started out years ago with a Brinkman water smoker. Then I got a Bandera (which I LOVE), and two years ago decided to try the electric route (when I couldn't devote a whole day to tending the fire). Got a Cajun Injector Electric Smokehouse on sale from Cabela's, and have been happy with it. (Until today's electrical failure and repair work.)

    There's something to be said for a real fire: the technology is proven, and it doesn't break :)

    I still have some tinkering to do on my smoker, I see. Not enough smoke to suit me just yet. That darned element needs to be just right and I'm not quite there yet. Bet the pulled pork will still eat fine, though.

    Here's to thin blue smoke!

    Glad you've decided to start posted Goo. Lot's more fun that way!

    About the fire- I tried to grill out last night. Put the charcoal in the chimney, put the paper in the bottom, went in to get matches and dang if it wasn't raining. [​IMG] Happens just like washing a car I swear!
