8) Hi everyone! Jim here, from Long Island, New York. I am new to smoking meat. I saw a show last week on the Food Network about smoking meat and I was :shock: intrigued. Did a search and found this website right away and started reading - learning as much as I could as fast as I could. Today, I ordered the Great Outdoors Deluxe Gas Smoker (Big Block, I think) through Amazon.com from the link right here on smoking-meat.com. I looked all over to try and buy one locally (I called stores over two hours away) without having to have it shipped, :cry: but no such luck - it's just not the season for it around here, :? I guess. I am very excited, but I have to wait at least two weeks before it will arrive, as it is pre-ordered. In the meantime, I plan to start the e-course and pick up as many tips as I can. I fish alot, and I am looking forward to smoking fish, along with anything else that I can find. Thank you in advance for all the info/advice/tips/help that you are going to give me! Jimmy G.
