A great big friendly HOWDY Y'ALL from Kingmac here in Live Oak. I have been a great fan of BBQ using primarily charcoal and/or wood. I have a big grill with an offset firebox making it ideal for smoking. 

Some time ago, I bought an electric smoker and have used it on numerous occasions, And just about six months ago I purchased a Char-Broil Big Easy Propane grill for grilling, smoking, and oil free frying. I have used it for grilling and smoking, and it works pretty well.

Today I am going to smoke bacon wrapped chicken thighs using Jeff's naked rib rub, and some fingerling potatoes.

I also have a Char-Broil four burner propane grill which has sat idle under a cover for over a year.
