I am Chris I live in southern Maine originally from Texas. I just got into smoking the last couple years. I bought a WSM and am looking to upgrade a little to a stick burner. Been looking at the Horizons, the real reason being I can buy it without having it shipped/going to get it a thousand miles or more away. Most importantly seems to be a really good smoker that is made in America. I am also looking into helping people around me who do comps, just to get my feet wet. Thats where I would like to eventually go with this. Thanks everyone, look forward to chatting with you.
