Well let's see, My name is Henry and have been smoking for approx. 10 years. I started with the Masterbuilt GrandMac charcoal smoker which I used for about 5 years and actually just gave it to a friend for him to try his hand at smoking. From there I bought the Big Green Egg about 4 years ago and last year I got a great deal on two Back Woods smokers ( Fatboy and the Party ). I am by far NO expert, but do have some experience under my belt, but still enjoy learning new concepts and new ideas. My neighbors thoroughly enjoy the fact that I love to smoke and typically enjoy all the various things I decide to try on the weekends. I am currently trying to get used to the BackWoods smokers and enjoying the learning process. I am now looking forward to meeting fellow smokers on this site and look forward to learn from other people on this site as well. So I will start off by saying Hello and here's to all that great smoked food ahead of us !!
