I've been lurking for a bit and decided to join for real. My name is Mike and I live in West Michigan. Been smoking for a long time but never been real serious about it but after finding this darned forum it looks like I'll be doing a bunch in the near future. I currently have a small cookshack smoker after going through endless versions of the stupid water smokers that never worked well. After looking around I'm sure there's many more things I'll be buying in the near future to get some of these great things on this site going.
