Well, I have been here before but it has been a while so I thought I would kind of start over again. My name is Ian Parker and I live in Kingsburg,CA. I have been smoking for a little less than a year on and off. I have been using a char broil charcoal water smoker. I suppose after reading some of the postings that it is the same as an ECB. Extremely difficult to work with (at least for me) but created some good eats. I have focused mainly on poultry. I have done a couple chickens and a turkey. I have just recently ordered a GOSM and it should be here any day and I am already planning way too much. These forums have been extremely helpful and I look forward to begin interacting and getting to know you guys.
