Good evening,

I've been lurking for a few months now and decided to drop in and say hello. I've been smoking every weekend for about 2 months now and I'm hooked. I even got my old man hooked. I've learned a whole bunch from reading your guys posts here daily. Trust me if I'm not smoking, I'm either thinking about it or reading about it. Hope to soon pitch in and help others out here as well.

Polishmeat and Wilkat,

Im in the Humboldt Park/ Bucktown area about two blocks west of North Ave. and Western Ave. I'm a Cubs fan but I have to give it you Sox fans. Your game yesterday was awesome.

So garab up the camera and get to snapping. happy to have you and your dad in the smokin family.

Jibaritos eh? I love those too, but thats a whole different forum. LOL! Next time I make them I'll write down the entire process with pics. I do them on the fly so I might miss something just typing it up here.
