HI, Luke here. Doing my smoking in Idaho, I have minimal experiance, used to have a little chief smoker from lurh-jensen a long time ago. Getting back into it with a CampChef Smoke Vault 24. Did my first smoke about a week ago, and it turned out ok, everyone said it was great but i rank it as ok. Used the E-course info thanks for that. There is alot of great information here. I appreciate the time and effort you all put in to make this such a great and informative site.
