I have been using a Kingsford charcoal grill for about 2 years now. I just bought my first smoker friday and used it today. I really like it. It is I believe a master force from lowes. It's a pill type smoker. I use home made charcoal in my grill so I just used it in my smoker. I was looking around on the inter web for some help and stumbled across this forum. I hope to learn some new and fun stuff to do with my new smoker.
