I've cooked with gas for over 30 years. It's time for something better. I'm 55 with 9 year old twins and a great wife. I don't have time to learn with charcoal so I just ordered a Grilla grill pellet smoker. I'm not entering any contest so I thought this would fit the bill. Just feeding my family and it has to be a step above a gas grill. I'm from Rushville Indiana. I've lived in the same county all of my life. Like the title says, I'm here to learn. Thanks for sharing your bbq and smoking knowledge.
