Hi All, Just found this forum a few days ago. Wow! Already learned so much. I'm a nurse, living in the Greater Washington, DC metro area. I love to cook/grill/smoke. My old CharGriller Smokin' Pro is dying on me and I am in the market for another offset. Am CONSIDERING a Peoria 24x4b Backyard Custom Cooker. Whew! Wondering what you guys (and gals) think of them. I'm definitely an amateur at all this, but it is lots of fun and very rewarding (tasty). Looking forward to lots in good interaction with you folks. Thanks. Krisby It seems that I didn't actually post this thread so I'm giving it another go. Since joining two weeks ago, I have settled on the PCC 24x48 with the insulated firebox. Ordered it today! Can't wait for it to be delivered. Should be about 2 months. Gonna have to dismantle my fence to get it to the backyard. So, looking forward to some great interaction on the forums and to learning a lot about smoking/grilling/cooking and other stuff.
