Hello my name is Jim . Im new to pellet grills but use to using a stick burner.. I have smoked all my life mostly mullet , I live in Florida and am a merchant engineer. I am engaged live my fiance' and her two boys. I have a saint bernard, a pet Boar that weighs 135lbs raised from a baby (he just showed up in my yard and never left). Also have a Macaw, Umbrella Cockatoo, and a Goffin Cockatoo. I bought a Traeger Grill and am not real happy with it as I am having issues.
