    I am a 66 yr. old retiree.  I live in a wonderful small town in Oregon out in the country.  Have been here just over a year now & am enjoying getting used to small town living.

    We recently purchased a Traeger smoker & are enjoying learning a better way to smoke.

    Previously had a Char Griller barbeque-smoker-firebox which worked pretty well, but had to constantly tend to it.  I have been a fan of Jeff for a long time.  His recipes and smoking methods have never let me down.  His rub & sauce are the best.

    Thanks for the welcome.  David, I see you have a Char Broiler grill. Are you happy with it?  I've been looking at those, but I keep wondering if I should spend a little more for a higher quality grill.  I don't need a Weber anymore ( I gave mine away ) but I've heard good & bad about Char Broiler.
