Hey, I'm Chris From central NC. I have been grilling anything from whole hogs to seafood for many years but decided last year to get into smoking. After doing some research and stalking the website for months I ended up with a OK Joe Highlander. Last month I ran across the OK Joe Bandera for $89 and couldn't turn it down. I also have a 18" Weber and a 30 year old Portable Kitchen grill that is a chicken cooking machine. A few of my hobbies are hobbies are fishing, hunting, searching for Native American artifacts. Thanks for all the info I've already learned from here and hope to post my first Q-view pics soon!
