Hi Michigan Group. Been a member for awhile and just discovered that there is a Michigan Group. Cool! I'm new to serious smoking, and am in learning stage. I bought a SFB Char-Griller Smoker. Made some mods to it before I ever fired it up. It works pretty well for me, but it does take constant tending. But I think that tending is what I like the most. I won't have much in way of advice, as I am a newbie, but that don't mean I won't enjoy talking with other Michiganders about our projects. And of course I'll have a lot of questions off and on to make you feel good when you know the answers, and can help a fellow Michigander out. LOL Glad to be here!
