Hi all, I am Lance from Happy Valley Oregon. I have been a long time BBQ consumer/Tester and thought I would try doing some of my own. My Family has been smoking fish for over 20 years and have a family recipe that is to die for. I want to get into making briskit, ribs, pork loins ect. I have not purchased a smoker yet but have my eye on the chargriller pro with side fire box. Any suggestions for other smokers or reviews of this one? From what I have read about it this is not the ferrari of smokers but will do a fair job for not a big investment. I am looking forward to taking the e-version of smoking 101. Great idea by the way for newbies like me. I look forward to learning all I can and turn out some great BBQ.
