Welcome To Your New Addiction

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.
Thanks for the welcoming! I have a box picked out, couldn't beat the price. it was free. Just got to see what its gonna take to prep. Ya'll wanna know what kinda box I'm gonna use? Haven't seen one yet like this....close but not exactly.

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!
Welcome aboard.. Definately post up some pics and check out the build section also.

I'm a valley native but I've watched payson grow from a sawmill and rodeo town to a wall mart support group. Who's idea were the turnabouts and what happened to the Oxbow Salloon???
