Before I got the email advising me to post in the Roll Call section, I put up my first post in the New Member section. Aw, well, no problem.
My wife and I live in the mountains of southwest Virginia, about 45 minutes south of Roanoke. I'm retired from 30 years in industrial construction and really enjoying it.
I've been grilling for many years, but now that I have the time, I figured I'd get a smoker and try it. I bought a simple base line unit, the Char-Broil square box smoker. I figured I'd start with something simple and learn on that.
I read the directions (imagine that!) and got the smoker seasoned and cured yesterday. Today, I did some navigating through the learning curve and smoked a single Italian mild sausage while doing it. I learned a lot and the sausage was great!
At this point, I have nothing to contribute but any results I might produce. That being said, I'm looking forward to becoming a part of the group.
