    Hello Jeremey and welcome to SMF.  I would advise you to try to get together on the phone or in person with ChefRob as he knows his smoke (in more ways than one, he knows a good cuban too) and could be a great resource.

    Welcome to the forum.  Glad to have you aboard.  Two years ago, I spent eight days at the Payson Hospital after having asthma and emphysema attack while fishing at Roosevelt Lake.  After that experience, I won't be coming back there anytime soon![​IMG]
