Hi, I'm Jack...everybody calls me Popajack now since my son is also named Jack. I was a lawyer in a former life. Now I try to enjoy life. I love to cook and I love meat. I have probably bought every kind of cooker that was ever made...but until I found the Smokette, I was still looking for that special tool that would turn me into a Q man. I have found it and I love it. My wife thinks I'm crazy...she may not be the only one if the truth be known. I enjoy the forum alot. It is a wealth of knowledge that is there for the asking. I hope to become a really good Q r, I'm not a bad cook around a stove and a grill for that matter, or so I've been told. I can't wait for the weather to get a little better then I will be doing all my cooking outside.
