Hello everybody , I live in Elko nv I work as a mechanic at a local gold mine,I really love to cook ! I enjoy making a meal friends and family say "man that was really good " there are time is been dude that really blows lets go get a pizza ! Ha ha I have been always fascinated with the whole smoking process , I have several smokers ,recently I got a Bradley digital smoker which I really like . I have smoked some chickens that were really good but I've yet to figure out how to do the tri tip and briscut . I have been searching the web looking at forums and gathering all the information I can so as to improve my abilities . The couple I have checked out are not very friendly or they act like its top secret , I just want to learn that's all ! I was checking this one and everyone seems to be super friendly and willing to help a fellow smoke head out ! I am super excited to get back into it , I hurt my back and am waiting for a surgery on 9/24/12 . It's been hard to try and smoke when I barely scraping by but when I go back to work it's fire up the smokers BABY !!!!!! I am looking forward to learning all I can and possibly help with anything I can , I am really excited I can wait till I can move with out pain and have some money so I can start smoking again !
