My name is Jeff and I live in Connecticut. Not known for BBQ or smoking but I wont let it stop me from attempting to build a smoker. I have been to a few places in Mass and watch the Food Network and I can smell and taste everything I see. It has driven me to give it a go and make my own. I have a gas grill that I use on a regular basis and cook everything on it when I can. I am not afraid to try anything.
