Hello to all and thanks for having me! Obviously I live in Nebraska, have all of my life except for a few years with the Army (Desert Storm, so yeah, I'm old). I've always been a decent cook, but started bbq about 20 years ago when my wife bought me a cheap bullet style smoker. Been hooked ever since. Over the years I've gone through at least 2 of those bullet style cookers and I've lost count of how many of the cheap off-set style smokers I've gone through. So this past fall I went out and bought an expensive electric pellet type cooker...I thought it was expensive anyway. It's a 'Louisianna Grill' (made in Canada, go figure) but I love it. I'd always considered it to be "cheating" somehow to have an electric, but what can I say, it's made life alot easier lol. And it's versatile, I can cook steaks at high temps or slow cook a pork butt all day long at 225. Anyway, looking forward to learning more about the q from all of you guys.
