Originally from California Im now stationed in Alabama. Im on my first big boy smoker shall we say since all I used before was a beefed up little chief smoker. It was a good smoker and got the job done on ribs, brisket, and lamb. Im now using a Master forge electric bullet smoker and im hoping to start smoking real soon. Been looking over the site the last couple of days and liked what i saw with everyone freely sharing thier ideas and experiences. Seems like a good community.
