Well, not actually from Georgia (Maryland), but this is where I call home now. I just purchased our first smoker, a MES 30" digital with window for a STEAL at $149 from TSC. Early 12 year anniversary gift for my husband. We assembled it last night and cured it today. Smoking our first meats tomorrow - two small chuck roasts and a pork loin rib roast. Wish us luck and yummy food!
