I'm Steve from Ames, Iowa. I got my CS 008 about 2 1/2 weeks ago from Cabelas. I bought it because I never have time to tend a fire anymore. I figured what good is a smoker which never gets used. Now I can try different stuff without having to commit an entire day to the process. Now I spend all day and night on the internet checking out recipies and getting advice. My wife thinks I'm surfing for porn. It might be because when she asked what I was doing I told her I was looking at some "big racks" and "nice butts." Do you think I should have told her it was all BBQ?????
