I'm new here to the forum and to smoking as well. I'm looking to purchase/build my first smoker within the next few weeks. I'm leaning heavily towards building a mini-wsm at the moment. Certainly wanting to stay in the charcoal realm. My names Matt and I live in the Northeast GA mountains with my wife of 2 years. I'll be 26 this month and have been a CNC machinist/Tool Maker for 5 years now. I've been reading a lot of information from the site before I actually joined and I have gathered quite a bit of information and insight from doing so. I huge thank you to everyone in advance for the help, encouragement, and constructive criticism. Please ignore any future ignorance and simple minded questions coming from my way in the near future haha thanks again guys!
