I am Rob, I live in Northeastern Ohio. I have done a small amount of smoking by modifying my gas grill and using a smoker box, but now I am interested in learning more, and trying some different techniques. I signed up for jeff's 5 day e-course, and have received my first email, looking forward to reading more. I am leaning toward an electric smoker, I am pretty handy so I would probably do some modifications myself, and possibly build my own smoker down the road if I really get into it. Looking forward to learning as much as possible and smoking some good meats!
