Thüros love

Some things in life are just comfortable, those jeans you’ve had for years and the soup your mum puts in front of you when you’ve had a crap day. That’s how i feel about my thüros. I own about seven different bbqs and smokers and they each have their specialist roles and talents. The Webers…
