I'm Gene, newly retired in Western Washington. I'm originally from Southern California and also lived in Albuquerque for a while.
I've been grilling for decades but have only gotten into learning about smoking over the past few years. I have a Weber charcoal Kettle, a propane grill, a propane GOSM and a Masterbuilt charcoal smoker. Since I had so much trouble holding temp to smoke anything in the Masterbuilt, I'm planning on using it for cold smoking.
I stumbled across the site while researching smoke generators and have been having a dialogue with Todd at A-Maze-N. It was exceptionally helpful to read all of the members' feedback on his products and customer service.
