Hello All, My name is George and I was born and raised in San Francisco Ca, but have been living in Australia for the last 8 years or so. I lived in Byron Bay for the first 4 years which is in the northern part of Australia and is considered pretty much a "Tropical Paradise". I've been living in the western suburbs of Sydney for the last four years. I have been barbecuing for 25 years or so and have owned both Webers and CharGrillers. I was recently attracted to this web site because of the thread: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/87235/advice-need-a-new-grill-weber-vs-char-griller/120 When I moved to Australia 8 years ago I left my CharGriller behind (idiot that I was) and was not able to find another one until 6 months ago. As such, I've recently renewed my passion for barbecuing. Even tho I've been barbecuing for 25 years I consider myself a complete NOOB and have only recently even begun making the distinction between smoking and grilling.
