Hi Everyone,
I live in the foothills of the Sierra's in the gold rush country of Northern California, and go by the handle of " Sierra Smoke"
I've been lurking for a while soaking up answers to some of my many questions, and have even taken Jeff's Smoking Basics eCourse. The time has come to register and get down to some serious smoking.
I have a low cost ($160.00) Char-Broil Offset Silver Smoker, and a Weber Gas Grill.
I have used the Weber for ten years and have become fairly accompleshed with it, but the smoker is new and so am I when it comes to smoking meat. I will have many questions for you guys and want to thank you in advance for the answers, that you are willing to share.
Sierra Smoke!

Welcome Sierra,

If you have questons, or are totally confused, remember the only bad question is the one that does not get asked.

Love your neck of the woods, well worth to cost of gasoline, for the family and I to make that drive.
