Including me! Now retired to Portland, we were 35 years in north Idaho until this year. I started smoking in a Little Chief years ago. When I started bringing more salmon and ducks home, I got a Big Chief but both soon found their way to the thrift store when I bought a CookShack electric. Like most other electrics, it's a great way to smoke. But, after ten years I wanted a more "hands on" experience. Being retired, that means sitting in a lounger, beer in hand (the hands on part) watching the smoke curl out of my new 20" Horizon offset. My fifth smoke, 15# of belly bacon, goes in tomorrow.

I've been reading the posts here and appreciate the depth of knowledge and experience y'all share. I am sure to learn a lot and look forward to it!

A patio cover was the first thing I did when we got here
One of those portable garage things and it works like a charm. The best part about being here (so far) is that I don't have to shovel what comes down from the sky

P-s-s-s-t,  don't tell him we get snow on occasion too.  True, not nearly as much as he's use to but well, now we got an expert snow shoveler in our neck of the woods.  Welcome to the rest of the Northwest.
