...yes, it's mostly federal bureaucrats and contractors around here these days...and no real army. Anyway...Jeff from Northern Virginia here. Been smoking successfully on a WSM for 3-4 years. Turning 50 this year and we all know what that means. New toys. Eyeing an upgrade coinciding with a patio remodeling project about a year from now. That may mean outdoor kitchen...or not. But will definitely mean a new smoking rig to decorate the new patio. Will be poking around here and asking questions. Hoping to get smart, or at least informed. Failing that, will take what I can get.
