Hello from Flowery Branch, Georgia!! I won't say I'm a pro-smoker, but definitely someone that has a passion for Smoking!! I usually smoke most of the Spring, Summer and Fall. I have not gone to gas or electric yet. I have a Char broil smoker, but it is wearing down. My new project is to build a Brick smoker in the back yard. So, I'm looking forward to starting that project, and more smoking!!
