    Greetings from Hoover, AL but soon to be Knoxville, TN

    Greetings all, I wanted to share how I got into smoking/grilling.

    I'm a RN and project manager. While working at a local hospital a good friend, who has since passed away (way too early), would bring a Boston butt on special occasions. I could not get enough. I started "ordering" a couple each time he mentioned that he was going to smoke. Then I started talking to him on how to do it. I then took to the web looking for sources and education.

    I had a, and still do, 22" Weber. I found a web site, maybe you've heard of it, AmazingRibs.com. One of the products they recommended was a Smokenator. I got one and got hooked. Honestly, I read through the entire site and started my journey.

    That was about 8 years ago and I have become the official BBQ guy for the family and friends.

    I would also like to apolgize for taking so long to join but it was strictly related to lack of time.

    Welcome to the pit Lynn_B

        Welcome Lynn. Better late than never
