Newbie from MA

Thread Starter 
Hello all I am 30 and new to smoking. I have had a love for smoked meat since I got my first tooth!! Now I think its time i start making it for myself. Hard to get good smoked meat in the northeast!! I am still looking at smokers and think i am going to go with an offset smoker to start. Still up in the air about using all wood or wood and charcoal. Guess I will see what works best for me

You said it Donny, 3 BBQ places close by to me in Jersey and none are worth paying for.
You made a good choice giving your own smoked meats a try.
Good luck!

Welcome Donny!
Where are you in Mass?
I'm in Southie. It's even harder to find fellow smokers in an urban area.
Good luck with your search for a cooker.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
