Hey all, I'm Bill from Gilbert AZ. I'm a noob to food forums, but not all forums and certainly not to smoking or cooking. My usual hang out is over at bimmerforums or Stanceworks. I just just purchased my first smoker today, that is to say that it's the first smoker I actually paid for. It's a Traeger Texas Grill from Costco that I just finished assembling and am in the process of seasoning at this very moment! I'll likely be asking more than advising other than input on flavor profiles or beer pairings.
