I just recently bought a Backwoods Chubby. WOW, not a cheap smoker, but they tell me it's a small competition smoker. We can't start using it until we sell a house and get settled in the new one. We love great smoked meats, and will have fun doing our own. We are between Lincolnton NC and Gastonia NC, just a stones throw west of Charlotte. We already have a recipe for smoked turkey, and can not wait to try it!!! I'm a Pilot by profession, but a Biker and a BBQ fan by heart. What goes better together than Bikes BBQ Beer and Babes!?
