    Hi everybody (said like Dr. Nick -- on The Simpson's)

    The name is Paul.
    Divorced (and now HAPPY), father of 2 GREAT Sons (24 & 19).
    I've owned smokers before, just the small ones, and I loved them. Then over the years they weren't what I wanted. Then this past Christmas, my oldest Brother gave me a propane smoker. So (as far as smokers go) I'm probably not as well equipped as most of you, but I figured this would be a great spot to learn, and share some recipes.
    I have the smoker fired up as I am typing.
    Hopefully this is a friendly group, as I hate the trolls that ruin the fun of these places....and I usually don't stick around long after that.

    Welcome as a newer member who never joins boards for the same reasons you stated let me assure you the guys and gals on this board are legit full of knowledge and friendly as can be. They do have one flaw though they love QVIEW and may have got me addicted to it as well.

    Illinois? Propane? No problem here. You stumbled on a great forum.

    What part of the state are you from?

    There are a whole bunch of people who are just darn good folks that are willing to help others.

    There are a lot of folks out there with propane smokers. What is the brand that you have. I would bet there are a bunch of modifications that you can make to get it to be more efficient if you want to.

    The only advice I have is buy a good thermometer, and don't use the stock one. They are usually way off.
