Hi Y'all... Just typed a 7 paragraph intro and it got vaporized here somehow....... Anyway, quick synopsis of what got vaporized... I'm retired military, granddad and dad smoked meat in smokers they built back then. I've had/used the old "garbage can" charcoal smokers. I just bought a new "BBQ Grillworks" gas smoker. It's a great unit, I did a little review in the reviews section. I'm not an expert and am looking forward to many great meals, because of the information gleaned from y'all here! This an awesome place to get one hell of a fine, smokin' education! Thanks a million in advance y'all!
