Howdy everyone. I guess I am back. I have missed you all very much. I know I have been away more or less since December. I did a big smoke for my son's 2nd birthday, then right as I had prepped almost 50lb of summer sausage, my smoker died... 100% death. No flame. I wasted a lot of time, meat and work, it all had to be thrown out. I needed a break, needed to fix my venturi, and am happy to be back.
