Hello just wanted to hi to everyone. I have checked out the forum several times and found some excellent info so thought I would join. I am using an Akorn chargrill smoker. I started using this as kind of an test to see if I wanted to spend the cash on a kamado joe ( which I still do ) but wow for 299.00 this thing turns out amazing! Q. So I kinda stuck with the Akorn. I have been in the restaurant business all my life and enjoy creating with food. My other passion is music. I love to play! So BBQ and some good old blues is my two addictions! I now work in the health care field but fire up the smoker at least once or twice a week! Long story short I tend to love creative things that bring people together and put a smile on their face here is my latest creation an 11 hour Boston butt. Turned out great. By the way from central Florida.
