Hello all! I joined awhile back but never posted, I've been lurking for some time now. So I figured it was time to introduce myself. I am Dave, formally of the Metro Detroit Area, have been living in Adrian, Michigan for the last 11 years. It just came time in life to make a huge change, and glad I did. I have had the gift of a lovely woman in my life for the last 11 years (you probably figured out that's why I moved). I also have the pleasure of a wonderful dog, The Dude, that's my furry Son, I would be lost without him. This is my family, and I feel truly blessed! I have many active hobbies, sometimes I don't know how I make the time to do it all and keep up with everything, but somehow manage. I am in to custom computers, home theater, golf, bowling, auto detailing, and cooking. I've always wanted to cook ever since I can remember and really got into BBQ starting in 1998. Then about a year ago got my first smoker. I've done a lot of research on this forum and have learned a lot, so Thanks to All of You who post! I learn something new every time I log on. And can honestly say I have not had one bad thing come out of the smoker. Look forward to learning more Thanks for having me! Dave.
