Name is Bobby and I live in Texas. I've been cooking forever and used to do it professionally. I've been wanting forever to start to learn smoking, and I finally started a month ago! I went and picked up a chargriller akorn and I love it so far. It'll hold me until I get my BGE. I joined here because I have been doing endless reading and research to learn this new craft, and after every Google search I end up reading great write ups here. So, kudos to whoever it is that runs this site, and to all that contribute to it! I look forward to discussing the great art of smoking with everyone here. Cheers!
