G'day folks!  I joined a couple months ago, but am just coming back to this site recently.  I must say it is the most useful that I have found on smoking.  I'm a pastry chef and thought I was a pretty good cook too until I started finding out how much I don't know about smoking.  I've always loved the flavor varieties, but only recently started experimenting with smoking myself.  I'm looking forward to learning more techniques and broadening my cooking skills.

Thanks for this site!
