My name is Joe, and I'm a smoked meat addict. I really hope this isn't a 12 step group for BBQ junkies, cuz I don't want to get better. After a couple of years of lurking around here and admiring the magic that you all have been sharing, I have decided to jump in here and become active. I have tinkered around with smoking meat on my Weber kettle grill and a cylinder grill with limited success, but I have always wanted to buy a proper smoker. Well, last week I finally ordered a Dyna-Glo wide body vertical offset smoker. Reading many of the threads about different options helped me come to this decision. Although, I would like to someday purchase a Lang or comparable smoker, this option fits my current budget. I'm looking forward to learning so much more from this great community of smokers of meat as I start down this path.
