Hello. This is Walter from the Cleveland Ohio area. I just purchased a Rec Tec grill and had used this site in reviewing it. The grill was so nice that I joined to post a good review. Rec Tec deserves it. Anyhow I have occasionally used an old Cabala's propane/charcoal smoker and decided to upgrade this past Christmas. Took me three months to decide which one. Ended up spending a lot more than first planned but I am excited to join in and am a huge appreciator of good smoked meat. Hopefully I will create my own. I plan to use this site for lots of advice. Thank you for allowing me to participate.
Good to have you Walter, great site just ask away on the questions'
