Hello all! I'm Mike, living in North Carolina now but i'm from Canada originally. I've been smoking on and off for about a year, just took a class down in Houston back in March, then found a company here to make me a nice offset smoker for the backyard. I'm glad i came across this site, it has been very useful learning new ideas and improving old ones I had. I own and work at a cigar bar here, so lately all my smoking results have been taken down there for people to sample and they've been very happy with what i've copied from the rest of you. Looking forward to learning more and hopefully posting some great new things too.
