I would like to take this time to say "HELLO" from Upstate New York. I am a newbie to the smoking community, and I have been slowly gaining an education from the fine members of this site along with the informative e-course that is offered here. I have been slowly building a side firebox smoker out of a 100lb tank and it is nearing a test burn. I am more than sure that I will have to make a few mods to my build now that I am gaining a better understanding of smokeology 101 from this site. Thank you to all that make this site what it is, along with having the patience to deal with newbie's like myself!!!
