I am so happy to be a member of this great community. My name is Alexis and I live in Round Rock, TX. I purchased my first offset smoker in 2004 and only used it as a grill until earlier this year - but once I did I stumbled upon a world I never knew existed!! The amount of useful and helpful information on this site is staggering, and members go out of their way to make you feel welcome and answer any questions to the best of their ability. My passion for "low and slow" has even led me to recently purchase a Lang smoker :-). I look forward to years of happy smoking and interacting with fellow forum members - or should I say family members. Keep Smokin'!!
