Man I have been BBQ and smoking for years and never found this till now. Talk about living under a rock. Lol... I live in north east florida and have 2 different set-ups first is s custom built pull behind side box fed smoker big enough to cook 2 whole hogs on I will use this one for large parties from time to time. My second set up is a masterbuilt little fridge deal love that little thing never lets me down and if Im tight on time she does the trick. Smoked meats are my favorite thing to do there is just something peaceful about it. Im looking through all the forums now and am looking forward to picking up some new things.
