Hope I got this right... I hail from West "By God" Virginia but joined the Air Force and that was it! I ended up in FL, and that's ok, plenty of good weather to barbeque! My wife and I enjoy smoking butts and ribs, and the occasional Rib Roast (rib bones down). Would like to improve on this smoke, cause that's a $38 piece of meat!! I use a Master Built smoker and feed it wood chips. My dream smoker is an offset, on a trailer for towing. Looking forward to reading your posts!!
