Hello everyone. I'm Jason, and I'm new to smoking. I just got a smoker the other day (early Christmas present) and although I haven't tried it yet, thanks to this site, I've already figured out what I am going to make first! A little bit about me, I am a VERY busy person. I hope I have time to use my new smoker. I am an avid hunter and fisherman. I have 2 daughters, one that loves to hunt, and one that is starting to show some interest. I am a volunteer firefighter and EMT for 2 different departments. I work full time, and travel throughout the state of Illinois working on fire equipment. I am a Medic in the Illinois Army National Guard. I attend college part time to be an HVAC-R technician. I am also a board member of our local Isaac Walton Leauge chapter. Like I said, I'm a little busy, but I always find time for new hobbies such as this!
