Glad to be here. I'm located in NC, but originally from PA. I'm pretty new to smoking food, but I've always had a knack for cooking. I started off with a little cheapo brinkman charcoal smoker. My wife got me a masterbuild two door propane unit for my birthday and I've used it a couple times so far and things have turned out great. Although it's not the greatest unit, it'll get me through for a while as I learn some things. I'm getting ready to smoke my first poultry this weekend for my birthday party, hopefully it turns out ok. I've checked in on the forum a few times for some education and I've found it great. Excited to dive further into the smoking universe....I love food.
