Greetings....I happened to stumble across the forum while searching the net for something...can't remember now! I have been smoking for about 12 years now. I started with a New Braunfels barrel grill. It didn't even have an offset, but I made some darn good Q with that grill. I'd really like to get a Tejas smoker or a Klose.....but until I win the lottery...I'm using what I have...all in my sig. Smoked about 6lbs of salmon yesterday in the little chief....came out great. I'll be doing a 20lb fresh ham this weekend...not cured, but I am going to brine it.
