Hey all! I'm 42 married with a 4 year old...yea I was a procrastinator! Waited to long to get started smokin too! I'm strictly an amateur smoker. I have a Brinkman Pitmaster, a gas smoker, and a water smoker. Love the flavor with the Brink but it sure is a pain to keep the right temp! I plan to upgrade this summer to a Horizon or maybe a Traeger or Louisiana. I like the idea of building my own fire but I am leaning towards the ease of the Traeger or Louisiana. Any input would be great! Thx! Ron DO WHAT YOU LOVE...LOVE WHAT YOU DO!
