Hi all, I should have started here yesterday, but got so excited about askin yall about my smoker problem I went straight into posting. My name is Mike and I live in northern Idaho. I am not really a smoking newbie, I have been using my weber Kettle for Ribs and Prime rib now for several years. I decided to build a smoker out of an old fridge we had at our vacation property. The family is getting larger, and it seems if I am smoking something people come out of the woodwork.! Thank you all for the greetings and I am excited to chat with yall and use this resource! as soon as I figure out how to do it, I will post pics of my smoker. especially if I continue to have the problem I am having, anyway, great to be here! see you in the forums, Mike.
