I live in Altoona, PA but travel for work very often. I work as a professional actor and perform in regional theatres across the country. I recently purchased a nice sized wood smoker (I'll post some pics in a day or two) and so far I've made some pork ribs but will be moving on to something a bit more ambitious for Christmas and New Year's Eve (trust me, I'll be looking for some help, please!!!). This is an awesome site and I love seeing that I have some fellow smoke fans living so close! And for a newbie, I really love how overwhelmingly helpful everybody is.
