My name is Bill (a.k.a. Airboss) and I live here in beautiful Bradenton, Florida. I got into smoke and que by way of my son Greg, who many of you may know as the site administrator for the BBQ-4-U board.
After 35 years of grilling I decided to wade into the que waters slowly. I purchased an inexpensive electric/H20 smoker to get a sense of what is involved. It was an education and the que wasn't that bad albeit a tad cumbersome and sort of messy when it came to clean-up.
I was visiting a friend in Dallas and he had just purchased his 008. I was amazed at the concept, configuration, ease of use and quality of the food he prepared. I guess the recent promo offering by Cookshack pushed it over the edge and on Christmas Day Mrs. Airboss surprised me with an email confirming my Smokette would be delivered on the 28th. To paraphrase, the rest is history in the making.
I love the site and appreciate all the help & advice here. Most of all, I'm glad you have all had the chance to meet me.
