Hi gang! I'm Dan, I live in Virginia and I love BBQ! I have one of those litte R2-D2 looking smokers but it's just not big enough. I'm thinking of building a charcoal hot smoker in the backyard but I'm still in the planning stages. Don't tell anyone but I get most of my good ideas from the internet. So it's very nice to meetcha, hopefully we can make some beautiful meat together!
