I'm new here and like what I see. I live in Hutchinson ks and have been smoking for 10 years or so with pretty good luck. I bought a used brinkman charcoal smoker to learn on and have worn it out so am ready to upgrade to a new one. I've pretty much decided on a Yoder smoker because of the quality and it's made locally. I hope to learn quite a bit hear because everyone seems friendly and knowledgeable. I wish everyone a joyous holiday season and happy smoking and grilling.
