Hi folks, new to the forum. I live in Spencer County, Kentucky (outside of Louisville) and have also lived in Pennsylvania/New Jersey and Massachusetts. I have a Brinkmann offset smoker and a new MES 30" (gen 2) cabinet smoker. The Brinkmann's firebox is rusted out so I mostly use it to grill now. Looking to get into some serious smoking with the MES... just got it a week or so ago, smoked a chicken, and it came out great.
