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.
