    As the subject title says, I a "newbie" to the forum but NOT to smoking and BBQ's.  At age 76, I have burned more than my share of coals to make some tasty BBQ'd stuff but I am NO EXPERT.  

    We have had several grills and smokers over the years, some home brewed and a few small commercial units.  I currently have two different smokers, one Masterbuilt 40" propane unit and a smaller Weber (round top) which is electric fired.  Both serve our needs as the kids have grown and the grandkids keep them occupied so I primarily smoke or grill for the wife and a few friends in the area.  I still enjoy it, albeit not as it was when the kids were around for the food eating part  :)

    I live in Central Wisconsin and do a bit of hunting a fishing which often provides the meat that I either smoke or grill as does my annual trips to Wyoming for big game hunting. Either way, we have plenty of meat around here when needed.

    As I write this, I have the Masterbuilt loaded with 5 #'s of Pork/Venison breakfast sausage and 10 #'s of Pork/Elk "polish" sausage.  The smoker is doing its job even with the windy conditions today.  Fighting the wind does make temperature control and issue but, I have a plan to overcome that with a few modifications to the base of the smoker frame. (Adding some wind shield panels around the bottom).

    So, there you have a brief introduction and I plan to keep smoking and BBQing till I'm on the dirt side of the grass.
