Hello to all. I am a true rookie at this smoking thing.  I do have plenty of experience on the propane grill and am looking to expand.

I am in the process of building my first smoker now.  I have been browsing this sight for ideas and can say that it has been a huge help.  I am almost done with my build and will post the end result when completed.

Welcome from Canada, Quigley.


I only started smoking last year and I received so much help from this forum. The postings have so much information and I got a lot of help and advice from the generous members. I think you will like it here.
