I just found this forum and registered immediately. Why? I bought a Perfect Flame gas smoker from the local Lowe's a few weeks ago ($119.00) and tI am rying to learn how to use it. Since there were no real instructions or recipes with the smoker, I did a search and found this forum. BINGO! Just what I was looking for. Me? I love to eat and enjoy smoked meats. I love Lexington style BBQ, I am a charter member of the NC BBQ society, I make professional grade and sized end grain butcher blocks, I don't have a lot of free time but I like to cook, I own some high end Japanese knives and enjoy how they perform and I am looking forward to reading more on this forum.
