    Hi All,

    My name is Doug.  My wife, four children, and myself live in Jacksonville FL.  I would consider myself more than a casual smoker but definitely not an expert - maybe an enthusiast?  I've been smoking meat on a regular basis for about 7-8 years and grilling since my teens.  Recently purchased a Smoke Hollow LP 44" smoker.  Previously, I was using a MasterBuilt electric and offset barrel smokers before that.  With four kids, I had to get away from "purist" aspect of tending the fire and decided to go the electric/LP way.  As far as a grill goes, I have only used a Weber charcoal grill.  That's what Dad taught me cook on and I see need to change.  I considered going gas when life got busier years ago (wife, 4 kids), but someone suggested a charcoal chimney and it worked great.  The wife will even fire it up when I'm on my way home from work if we are pushed for time.

    Well, I think that's the basics.  I look forward to meeting some good people and learning a few things.
