Hello fellow smokies, I am fortunate enough to reside in beautiful East Tennessee near the Great Smoky mountains. There are plenty of places to get good barbeque in this area but I want to learn how to do it myself. My Brother Lee, AKA "White Cloud", turned me on to this site. My current equipment includes a Ducane Gas grill and a Big Chief smoker. I haven't gotten to fancy yet but have made some pretty good smoked fish, jerky and beef brisket. I look forward to learning from all you experts out there and will be seeking advice on purchasing some new equipment soon. Thanks ya'll!! Guy "Smoke Whisperer"
