Very interested in learning to smoke. I've been a griller for a long time and want to try something new, thinking about starting with a pellet burner. I'm retired from the Air Force and later health care materials management. Decided to lay down roots in Green Valley about a year ago and couldn't be happier. Have friends in the area that have GMGs and Traegers. After a lot of research I' looking ahh the RecTec 300. Just the wife and me, and an occasional guest so it should be large enough. This forum has provided a wealth of info.
