Hello fellow smokers! My name is Gary from Willowick, Ohio. I've been "Q'ing" for several years now. I started with a charcoal ECB then moved to an electric ECB. (not good enough) Modified the electric one to gas. I got a lot of use out of that until I bought the Akorn. Now I cant stop using it! I grill burgers and steaks and smoke butts, ribs, "fatties" and stuffed jalapenos. I look forward to learning from all of you.
