Good Morning All, My name is Joe, and I'm an addict. This is my first year smoking. I got started with a Master Forge cheapy that a couple friends bought for me as a baby gift (I just had a my first child, and they thought I needed something to do since I'd be stuck at home). I did several smokes on it, but was unable to maintain my desired temps. Therefore, I quickly upgraded to the WSM. Love it! With that said, I look forward to chatting with y'all. Been learning a lot off this site and everyone seems very helpful and down to earth.
