Hi, all! I am from Nova Scotia, Canada...Being new to the Smoker scene... and not having the $1k plus for the BGE and it's like... I purchased an Akorn Kooker at last year's end of season sale at a local HomeDepot, and what a bargain! I've used it to smoke pork ribs and pork roasts... awesome job, I must say! So easy to use... will have to try to keep up on this Smoker Forum for ideas! Cheers!
