"You're a madman."
"Aye. I've come to the right place then."
Wow. Thanks for the greetings guys! It looks like I've found the right place to be amongst mad hatter smokers like myself. Not many understand my affection for smoking. They understand the end result, which is them stuffing their faces, but they dont understand the love of the process. A friend of mine tried to do a slow smoke with me last year and he almost went insane with boredom. Not me. Eight hours of slow smoking, drinking beer in the cool fall weather with a football game on the radio, that smell of hickory in the air, adding wood chips when needed, absolute heaven! I too love my ECB, no shame there. I'm just itching to try a vertical wood smoker. But yeah, I dont imagine I would throw my ECB away. Too many good memories! Again thanks for the welcome and here's to learning more about this art form I've come to love!
