My name is Toby. I'm from a small area in the heart of NC. I'm located almost in the middle of the state, between Greensboro and Raleigh. 3 hour drive to the coast, 3 hour drive to the mountains.
I've been smoking meat for right at 1 year, so I am still quite new to all of this. I've been on this site and soaking in all the great information for about a year also. I thought it was time to introduce myself and say "hello". I have already learned so much from you guys, and eager to learn much more. I had no idea that smoking food was so involved, but it has already been a lot of fun, and I'm constantly looking for new meats to throw on the smoker.
Right now I'm using a Chargriller Duo w/SFB. I have done most of the "mods" that are mentioned in the forums, but it is still a chore trying to control and maintain steady temps. But part of that is what makes it fun. I have been thinking about expanding out and getting the WSM. From what I've read it is a little easier to use, and you can cook a lot more meat at one time. Any advice on this is greatly appreciated.
Well, thats just a little bit about me, and my smoking experience. Those who know me, know that I can talk forever, but no one comes here to read a book, so I'll just stop here for now. But I really appreciate all the loyal contributors to this site. You will never know how many people you have helped start this jorney, that will choose to remain a "lurker", just like I was before today.
