My name is bryan. Im from crestline ca. that is in the mountains of Socal. I got a COS on monday, and have been messing around with it a couple times this week. I am looking forward to learning as much as i can about smoking, and if i decide that i will use it enough. At the end of summer Ill be buying a really nice smoker. It seems like a great way to cook game meat, and should be lots of fun messing around with it.
