I am just learning the ropes here. I live in middle Georgia...65 yr old...4 to 5 years of outdoor cookin' experience with infrared gas, Master Lodge charcoal, Cajun Injector barrel smoker, and Masterbuilt Electric Smoker, also have a portable charcoal grill for small stuff. This forum intrigues me because I want to learn a lot more about smokin' with WOOD. I am a "fire pokin' " ADHD kind of guy. The charcoal grills let me poke but don't let me smoke very efficiently. If I can build a fire and smoke somethin', that will be cool...don't get much pokin' done with the MES. I have been cookin' with the LTBBQ gang for a while...nice, helpful folks. Wanna hang out here, too, to see what I can learn about wood smokin'.
