I started a juicing diet which will last for a couple of months. I'm 6'2" and 285lbs., but very solid and not at all fat and blubbery type. When you eat more meat you gain more mass, and when you eat more fat you gain more ass. Anyway, it'll be awhile before the smoker will be used again :-(. My goal is 230lbs. I hope to be there by the end of June. After that I'll jump back into Smokin, because it's in my blood and I love to cook.
