Hello all,
My name is Jeff, I live in N.W. PA. I've always wanted a smoker because the taste is perfect! Since I'm new in this I got an electric smoker by Char Broil from the local Home Depot.

I didn't think smoking would be hard but now I see by this forum it's an art. I'm looking forward to the help and advice I can receive from everyone!

Welcome smokerlover

Smoking is an art. It allows all kinds of creative juices to flow - and tastes good too. Like most great art it is most enjoyed when kept clean and simple. Enjoy!

Love the electric smoker way of smoking meat. Although I just can not get enough smokers (Got my eye on a little "hottie" at Menards)

Glad you are here, any questions ask away

Jeff, welcome aboard. My name is Jeff as well and I am also a newb. I too use an eletric and so far I am loving it. I also would recommend the ecourse. I did a bit of research before I even attempted my first smoke and while most of the info I got was helpful the ecousre opened my eyes and pointed me in all the right directions.
