My name is Matt. I am a Firefighter/Paramedic from the Columbus Ohio area. I am planning on getting a smoker in the next few weeks and hope to get a lot of good info here on recipes, techniques, and all other tips people are willing to dish out (no pun intended). I am looking at a vertical, two door gas/charcoal combo from master Forge available at Lowes. I plan to make a few Mods right out of the gate with at least the Gasket rope and possibly a Natural gas Mod. I would love to hear what you guys think.
