New Fouke Smoker


Joined Nov 19, 2013
Retired Air Force guy in Fouke, Arkansas, home of the Boggy Creek Monster!!!.  Love to Cook, Grill, and Smoke.  Been smoking for 15 years with a New Bruanfels Upright Smoker.   Love it but falling apart, can't find anything like it anymore.  I come across a FREE Bradley a few years ago, but now worn out, door fell off and will not heat up anymore.

Just purchased a MES 40 from SAMS and hope it works out after all the reviews.
