Hello, I'm Ron and I've been smoking for about 6 years on my Kamado K7. I actually have 8 butts on the Kamado right now for myself and co-workers, went on at 6AM. I found this site while surfing around looking for an Electric smoker to add to my arsenal. I'm thinking either MES or Bradley right now. I live in Centralia, WA 1/2 way between Portland and Seattle and I love BBQ. My wife and I are KCBS certified judges, but we don't compete, we'd rather just eat.
