New smoker

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by bowtiensm, Jun 20, 2013.

  1. Hello everyone. I just wanted to put a post in over here so I can avoid the future recommendation to introduce myself. I'm 28, from Indianapolis, went to school and worked as a chemist for a while, went back to school, and am now in my final year of dental school. I've been pretty busy with school the last few years and finally have time for a hobby...and why not have a hobby where I can sit around all day and drink beer, play with fire, and then enjoy a delicious meal afterwards.

    I'm completely new to smoking. After reading through the forums on here I decided on the new big block GOSM which will be arriving this week (thanks to whoever suggested it was on sale at BJ's wholesale...you saved me a good $100-150). I wanted to say thanks to everyone else who's posted all the great information on this site. It's been a great source of info (well after I figured out how to interpret all the dang abbreviations!!!)
