    Love this site, finally did the right thing.

    Greetings all. I have referenced this site many times, and appreciate all the great info here. I as yet do not have a high quality smoker, but I have big plans. Meanwhile I use an Akorn egg grill by Char Griller and the results aren't half bad. In fact they are quite good. I like having, and primarily use the grilling capability in the same platform. Thanks for creating & maintaining this site. Seacoast New Hampshire area BTW
