Hello from The Holly City. My name is Sean and I just found this site while looking for some info about smoking. I was first introduced to smoking in 96 when my girlfriend smoked our Thanksgiving Turkey. Never have I had a better bird. In the years since I have tried many times to recreate that delicious moist flavor. I am also in the process of clearing out my back yard of some rather tall pines and intend to set up my grill and smoker in a more user friendly orientation. So I was intending on doing some research on ofset smokers to replace my upright one I got at Home Depot. Wow was I in for a surprise I have read posts and threads and ordered three books from Amazon. Still have five more trees to drop and some landscaping to get done in the back but I will definitely be replacing that smoker with a new one. In the mean time I intend to lurk around here and read up on all the great foods I can smoke. Up until now it has always been turkeys, and Corned beef briskets. Both of which I love but also know I could do a better job of doing. So I will be here learning.
