New Member - Alan Dunn From Southern Utah. After saying for years I was going to learn the finer points of BBQ, I finally broke down and hit up Cabelas and bought one of their electric smokers last sunday. We live in the desert, about 90 minutes from Las Vegas. We, meaning my wife Robyn and 3 daughters - Megan, Wendy and Brianna. We like to RV, and we dutch oven cook pretty regularly, and this seemed like the next step. All this talking of ribs and brisket, smoked salmon.... im drooling like a pavlovian dog! Im excited to learn to cook this way. Its also very nice to meet you all!
