Popajack here. I quit smoking back in 1971. then I got my Cookshack and have been smoking ever since. I am a retired lawyer and aspiring smoker of meats. I have never been so impressed with any tool I bought as I am with my little Smokette. And the people on this forum have been there and done that for just about every question I have. You can't buy knowledge like you get given freely here on this forum!
