    I've been working for the power company for 28 years and I've had 2 of my 3 career jobs there.  Been an auto mechanic and am now an electrician at a power plant.  My first career job?  I was a meatcutter for 7 1/2 years out of high school, first got into smoking meat about 30 some years ago when the boss moved into custom slaughtering and bought a commercial smoker.
     
  15. I am a regional truck driver.  I drive a double trailer rig of bulk cement powder to various gold mines around Nevada.  I am also a woodturner by a hobby and business.  I am relatively new to smoking.  I just got my second smoker, but I guess the first doesn't count as it was a POS I used about 5 times and it never worked right
