I have been an avid griller, BBQer, and Smoker for a long time. I make my own sausage and even dabble in charcuterie. I brew my own beer and enjoy the outdoors.Through research and links I found this forum and saw all of the great smokers members have built (great work all). I have picked up some great tips and have found 2 builders that I intend to emulate for my new smoker,ShrekASTAC andATCNick (great design). I've picked up some smoking tips already too. I suspect I will be glued to this site. I currently have an offset horizontal smoker and a couple grills.
