  1. Hi all,

    My name is Ryan and am from southeast Iowa. I recently purchased a charbroil gas smoker. I would rather have a Traeger but that was not in the budget. I am also fairly new to the sport of smoking meats and do not have the experience to use wood as a fuel. I am avid in hunting and fishing and look forward to finding ways to prepare game that I harvest. Got a rack of ribs on the smoker as I type this and am excited to see how they turn out. I am fairly confident that like my father I will find a love for this hobby and end up spending more money than I should with it.
