Yep, that's me! I'm Joe from Riverside, Ca. 40 years old. I almost wrote 38. Must be old age. Bought me a large Treager about 6 months ago and still learning. New to smoking. I've smoked lots of Tri-Tips and a cooked few chickens in it. I usually take the Tri-Tips off when done and throw them in a small ice chest with a splash of red wine to steam for 20 minutes. YUM! Smoked some Salmon also. I need more experience with ribs and shoulder though. I'm sure this website will help me alot. Great website!!! You guys rock!
