I live in Michigan and I love to smoke different meats. I'm really glad I found this site because I've already learned some new ideas before I even joined. I've been smoking different meats for about 3 yrs now. I'm always open to learning new ways to smoke meats. I smoke yr round here in Michigan as we can have some nasty winters but it doesn't stop me from using my electric smoker. Thanks again and I look forward to some great recipes and new ideas.
