Why, yes I am.
I'm self taught & have been grilling and smoking for close to 30 years & have used everything from Japanese ceramic hibachi pots to a hole in the ground. Mostly a charcoal & hickory smoker but now I have the time I thought I'd branch out and learn from what looks to be a truly dedicated group of smoke artists.
I don't know that I'll have much to say in your forums as there's plenty of good info here to keep me busy for awhile but I did want to introduce myself and thank the host & contributors that make this such a rich resource of information.
If y'all will excuse me, I have some bellies needing my attention.
