I have actually been lurking around the forums off and on for a couple years now and have finally gotten around to introducing myself. Anyways, I live in NC and have been smoking for about two years. In truth it is a much shorter time than that due to multiple military deployments but I try to do/learn what I can with what little free time I have in the states. I use a smoke hollow smoker and just yesterday got the 6x8 A-MAZE-N smoker, naturally I had to make my first attempt at smoking cheese with it and smoked 3lbs today (he hard part is the waiting afterwards!) That being said I have learned a lot from these forums and I want to thank everyone for the great information provided.
