Smokin' in NC !

  1.     Hi Folks...  Love this site and just had to join.

    I started smoking 4 years ago and cut my teeth on a small side by side charcoal unit given to me by a friend. I learned alot with it, some mistakes proved costly in time and $ but gained some valuable experience along the way. After a year of that I got a vertical charcoal Brinkmann, I enjoyed that too and turned out some great product but maintaining of coals and temp grew frustrating.

       Two years ago I stumbled on a MES30 display model at Home Depot $79 and could not pass it up. I knew nothing about it but quickly learned to love it. I have amazed myself , friends and family with great ribs, chicken, fattys and my favorite... brisket... ever since.

    Look forward to expanding my knowledge from y'all!

  11. Love the name "alelover"...I am quite fond of them myself!

    I am on the eastern side of the state, close to Greenville! Yourself?
  12. Also, thanks to all for the warm friendly welcomes from all.

    I gotta say cruising this site the last few day I am extremely impressed with the work, and imagination of many of the members here ...and I can't wait to get my smoker as seasoned as some I see here.

    Keep up the great work people!
