Hi all....Pete Johnston from So California...(no Liberal jokes please...lol)! Just getting started with developing a knowledge base about smoking stuff.., although I 'd consider myself pretty knowledgeable in plain ole' "grilling". I've never tried smoking anything in my life, but I do have a brand-spankin' new Bar-B-Chef sidebox set-up that's all cured and ready to go. Now I just have to learn what the heck I'm doing... Anyway.., looks like a great Forum. I've broused around briefly and it seems like darn near anything I'd need to know is here somewhere.
