greetings. A few years ago for thanksgiving me and 2 buddies volunteered to smoke the turkey. We did it on a charcoal smoker and started a tradition. It was awesome. Since then we are the smokers. We have smoked briskets, turkey and pork. All has been good. I just recentlty found a holland classic II in the craigslist for $150 used once. I jumped on it and it has been a new learning experience. It is fun, so I started looking at people's recipes and here I am. Hopefully one day we will share a smoke. I reside in Flagstaff AZ at 7000 feet. I also enjoy air cooled VW's and BMW motorcycles and the outdoors.
