I was told about this forum by a friend and can't wait to get involved--I love food! lol I live in Upstate NY (Rochester area). Interests include fishing, boating, camping and eating and drinking beer. I'm relatively new to smokin', with only about 1/2 dozen attempts under my belt including briskets,whole chickens and pork ribs. I bought a 30" Masterbuilt electric smoker to start, but would like to someday, build my own or purchase a charcoal/wood smoker with a side chamber. I look forward to sharing info with you guys!
