Scott n daVille here. I'm from Louisville Ky., home of the "Greatest Two minutes in Sports".....the Ky Derby. Hopefully also home to a serious smoker as well. Hence my moniker "n daVILLE". Louisville is locally referred to as The Ville. I just got my first smoker for Xmas. The Smokin-it model 2. For my lifestyle, 2 kids and a business, required an electric smoker. I'm smoking my 4th different meat, so far so great. Loving it and looking forward to learning from all you fellow smokers.
