Yesterday I just picked up a previously well loved sm008. I was relatively unfamiliar with the cookshack brand. I was in the market for an electric smoker and was doing my routine weekly browse. I was hoping to get a gently used MES but someone was retiring this smoker.
A lil about me:
First, I'm usually here on my phone, so please excuse spelling errors from my fat fingers in a tiny touch-screen.
Secondly, no joke, my first word was bbq. Well probably more like ba ba coo. Apparently I used to run to the back patio door and point to that old grill and repeatedly say it to the probable annoyance to my parents. And nearly 40 years later I still love the bbq.
When to comes to bbq, I am no purist. While I do differentiate grill and bbq, I don't judge on the heat source. Gas, charcoal, electric, pellet, open flame or whatever else, its all good as long as you have a good time. I have a propane grill, old new braunfel off-set stick burner. a little portable propane smoker and now a cookshack sm008. All have there +/-. All have put out a fair share of deliciousness and their share of goof-ups.
Aside from grilling and smoking, I brew beer, make ciders & wines, ferment krauts, pickled vegetables, kimchi and other lacto-experimentals and definitely know my way around the kitchen. My only limit is my imagination, and sometimes I let it run unsupervised.
