My name is Joe and I'm from the Southern Maryland area, right across the Virginia border. I purchased my first smoker, a WSM, about 7 months ago and I've been enjoying using it every since. I've been regularly smoking chickens and have done a couple of briskets and a Boston butt. I'm constantly trying to tweak my techniques and improve each time. I know that there's a lot of knowledge here and look forward to learning from everyone.
