Hi, I'm Denise, or CountryBug. I'm from Pembroke, GA -- just a hole in the wall when it comes to comparing city sizes! lol I am a noob when it comes to smoking meat. Dad used to smoke the best pork shoulders and Mom learned how to smoke roasts. (She's a baker, not a grilling type person. ) I haven't purchased a smoker yet, and I'm looking into building my own. I've been watching a ton of YT videos, so as soon as the rain stops, I can hopefully, start smoking my own meat. I'm looking forward to learning from you more expert smoking guys and gals!
