Hello everyone, My name is Shawn and I live in Charlotte North Carolina. Age 45. I'm an on and off BBQ cook and I want to learn more on smoking meat and veg. I used to have a good, thick walled, offset smoker (Large oak tree fell on my house and crushed it when it fell). I now have a Bradley "Puck" smoker with an Auberins digital controller. Works OK. I plan to build a custom "All wood" smoker as soon the house repairs are finished. I am a classically trained chef and attended Johnson & Wales here in Charlotte. At this time I am not employed due to health issues. However I am an investor of a private company here in Charlotte. TheCityKitch.com. I look forward to getting to know some of you. And I may be able to help some members with the knowledge I possess. Lets Get Smokin"!!!!
