Got a Charbroil H2O for fathers day from my wife and daughter. My wife is 50/50 Itilian/Portuguese and can barely cook! I let her do the cooking after we got married (4 yrs on thur) and dinner was always very boring and usually our of a box or can. After our daughter was born a year ago, she wanted to go on a diet which meant no food in the house at all. I decided to learn about diets and found that with LA Weight Loss, we could have food in the house and it might even taste good! I took over all of the cooking in the house. I learned that i love to cook, ALL methods. I became addicted to the Food Network, started grilling on a regular basis, and now am looking forward to reaching that thin line of blue smoke. I had a friend in CA who had a smoker and we would rotate weekends on the grill. His dinners were always better, hands down. I can't wat to get going on this. After I put the smoker together, I want to make the recommended MODS from this forum, and start smokin'! Can't wait to try this FATTY that I keep reading about!!!!! This forum is great and has been extremely helpful for a beginner like me.
