Hi, My name is John and I live in upstate SC where if you are smoking its generally pig. I have been a member several months now and this is my first post. I"ve been smoking awhile now on an old Char Griller but have been pretty much on my own, learning as I go. Sure am glad that I found this site. Now I can see what I've been doing wrong. By the way Santa came early and dropped off a new Landmann 3895Gwla in my garage. Wife won"t let me touch it, had to wrap it up. Looking forward to learning from the experts.
