What's up y'all. I'm from NC and have been smoking for a couple of years. I grew up on Carolina style BBQ and decided along the way to try smoking my own. I gotta admit i've been lurking here for a while sucking up as much as I could learn from the gurus and decided it was time to join. I'm extremely impressed with all the info. available on this site and the willingness of the members to share their knowledge. Without knowing it you folks have guided me through many successful smokes. I look forward to learning more in the future.
