    Hello from New Jersey and yes its FREEZING!!!

    My name is Kevin and I am currently living in South Jersey. I have been into grilling for many years but it wasnt until two X-Mas ago my wife bought me a Masterbuilt Electric smoker and I am truly hooked!! During the day I wear a suit and work at a bank. But when I get home the it's to the grill or smoker!! When its too cold to use the smoker I spend my time making my own BBQ sauces and rubs. Currently I am looking to upgrade to a pellet smoker and i am leaning towards a Rec-Tec. Glad to be here and cant wait to start getting advice to improve my cooking.

      Welcome Kevinfilm! We're glad you're here. I wear a suit during the day myself when I'm travelling for work (35%). It's business casual at the home office thankfully.

                    Butts turned out pretty well - had to use more fuel, of course.
