Hello, my name is Brannon Revel and I'm basically a backyard smoking enthusiast who enjoys smoking ribs and an occasional brisket. I pastor a church and sometimes do some cooking for church related events. I am also founder of a missions organization which does pastor training in Cambodia. I'm currently in smoker limbo as the Old Country pit from Academy has died. I'm considering a traditional pipe smoker or the short sniper from Pitmaker. Any thoughts from anyone who has used both would be welcome. Blessings.
