Hello, I'm mitch i am from Iowa. I started out on a old charcoal smoker which i converted to electric. Well tax returns are in and i want to upgrade to a pellet smoker.so this morning i will be heading down to my GMG dealer to pick one up. This is my first visit to this forum. Man there are loads of recipe's on here. I'm excited. The only thing i am up in the air about is which model to get Daniel boone or Jim bowie. Can't wait to get some meat smoking.
