This is a note for newbies, and others too.
I've been mentioning this now and then with some of my posts, but it gets tiresome.
Would members please put where they are from, in their biography? That way it will come up on the top right of each post, along with the date you joined.
So many people neglect to do that, and it would make it a lot easier to answer questions, because a lot of times it has to do with temperature, altitude, and sometimes even access to certain meats, smoking woods, and other things.
Believe me---Nobody is going to wait until you are out back smoking some meat, and then go in your front door & burglarize your house. If that worries anyone, just put what state, or what part of the state you live & smoke in.
