Hi all, My name is John. I live in St. Louis, Mo. I am new to the whole smoking world. I have always used a Propane grill. I just bought a brinkman wood smoker. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a smoker for my first one. I plan on one day getting a Lang smoker. I just need some good ol' practice. The average temps vary from 20 degrees in the winter to 100 degrees in the summer. But however I will have plenty of questions.
