Hello everyone, Long time stalker of the forums, thought i would make it official. My name is billy, 35 years young, Navy vet, who loves to cook anything i can get my hands on. As a little boy i use to sit with my grandfather and help him smoke/cook all the time and it just stuck. Been smoking as much as i can the past 5-6 years, now it's almost every weekend if weather permits. I just ordered a mes 30 gen 1 last night, have been using an old charcoal grill prior. Anyways just thought i would make it official and tell everyone hello and how much these forums have helped me. looking forward to hanging around, thanks.
