Hello my name is James, and I am a first tiem smoker. I figuered I would post here to introduce myself and then start searching the newbie section. I am origionally from Ft. Lauderdale Florida but about 4 years ago I landed a job in Santiago, Chile. I recently moved out of our aprtment in the city and finally have a real backyard. with that said I just picked up a smoker because I was mainly tired of seeing all my friends in the states sending me pictures on the weekend of such delicious food. Thank you very much and looking forward to sharing my strires and experiences with you all.
