Hi there ya'll. I'm an extreme new comer to the smoking universe!!! I'm a cook and have been wanting to venture into smoking for a time now. I convinced the husband that he wanted an electric smoker and Santa brought him one for Christmas (Santa is very sly)!!! However after only 2 days of reading this forum I'm clearly infatuated!! His Christmas gift is more exciting to me than the jewelry, perfume, spa day, etc that Santa brought me!! Me: Location, southern Louisiana LSU fanatic Member of the Who Dat Nation Home cook (pretty decent so they tell me) Love to fish Love football & baseball (addicted to Fantasy Football & newly reigning champion!!) Love to shop Newly purchased electric smoker Thanks in advance to all the awesome threads where I've gained much know how in just 2 days. You guys rock. Looking forward to learning more and sharing my experiences!!!!
