Hi all,

 After years of enjoying a great BBQ, and telling the fiance that we had to have an offset smoker she broke down and got me one for Christmas. A Char Broil American gourmet deluxe. So that led me here, while I love smoked meats and fishes, I have to admit I don't have any experience doing it. I am hoping to learn a lot here. Hve a good day all.

Thanks for welcomes! Well its 19 degrees here in Michigan so I figured today seemed like a great day to season the ole girl, yes I decided it is a girl. I figure it will be as temperamental as one so it must be one. I also figured I better get it seasoned now and put a couple of things through it as I have people coming over in two and half weeks for a mid winter blues party! We will be pretending its not cold out, yeah right. Thanks again all, and yes I have signed up and have read the e-course well worth it.
