As you can guess by the username, I'm from artic minnesota. Our bbq season's are short but we are troopers baring the snow for delicious bbq. I've been smoking for about 7 years now on a home made file cabinate stick smoker. I had a bad greace Fire last summer doing a couple fatties and lost the smoker. As i type this a brinkmann trailmaster vertical is in pieces on my garage floor ready for assembly and gasket kit.
Love the hobby and looking foward to the forum!
