Hello from central Illinois

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello! My name is Andy and I am from Peoria, IL. I am new to this fantastic hobbie and just learning. I currently have a Brinkman Gourmet electric smoker, but am in the process of moving up. I am leaning towards the Char Griller Super Pro with side fire box. Is there a better product in the $200-250 range? So far, this site has been extremely helpful and I look forward to your help in creating better meat!

Good to have you aboard. :)

Nice to meet another Illinoisan on here! I'm Matt from southern IL (Carbondale area). I too have the electric Brinkmann. Smoking some spare ribs on it right now - our valentine's day dinner. I got the smoker last March as a birthday present. I've had tons of fun using it!

Hope you enjoy this forum as much as I do. Lots of very helpful people here.
