I wanted to say Hi and introduce myself as I'm a new guy. I live in Denver and have been grilling for a long time but got into smoking in the last year of so. Actually, Flash has been a huge help to me as I ran into him on Florida Sportsman's bulletin board. As a side note, I do a lot of inshore fly fishing so that's how we ran across each other. Anyway, I grill with gas or charcoal. It really depends on how cold it is around here. I have smoked fish, boston butts, chicken, peppers, etc. In short, it's like fishing I guess, the more I know teachs me how much I still don't know so I look forward to the collective wisdom of the board. Lastly, I am a pepper head to boot so I love heat. I grow peppers every season, dehydrate them, and then grind them into powders. Flash can attest to this. I make all my own rubs as well. I'm always playing with something.
