I am from North Carolina, Charlotte area, I have been smoking meat for a couple years on my Oklahoma Joe offset smoker/propane grill combo. I have grown to love the art of smoking meat and I have decided to build my own offset. I started on a smoker this weekend using a 130lb propane tank and a compressor tank for the fire box. This is my practice build before I start on a bigger build. My future goal is two build a trailer smoker with duel cook chambers and fire boxes and a charcoal grill on the front. If you want to know more about me just ask.
