Cold-weather newbie from MN

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by jim1957, Dec 31, 2009.

  1. Hi all! I got a Brinkman Gourmet smoker from my kids for Christmas (I knew I raised them right! [​IMG] ). I have made a couple of the suggested mods already, will finish the rest this week. Can't wait to start experimenting!

    Thanks in advance for the help I'll be getting,
    Jim from Rochester

    Naw, man. Livin' in Phoenix makes the winter seem shorter. 3 days when it's under 50, and in the 30s when I get up. That's all I can take, too! I've got tons of relatives in and around the TC, most of whom I haven't met. My sis went to Carleton, married a Bloomington boy, I was roomies with a guy from Princeton when I was in the AF decades ago, my cousin has land and a cottage on Blue lake there--Princeton or Zimmerman somewhere...on and on...And my 2nd fave author is John Sandford!
    Welcome to the forum, Jim. All your answers are here. Just ask the right questions!! :eek:)

    Jim, you've managed to get off on the right path with both feet firmly planted. Joining the SMF, and getting a new smoker. It's all good my friend.

    Welcome Jim! What part of the state are you in? You will find everyone here as helpfull as can be.

    You are right Meat Hunter there is getting to be quite a contingent of us Minnesoootans here. I'm thinking we need to have a smoke gathering sometime this summer. We have a beautiful campground just south of me in Barnum. I happen to know the owner quite well. With a little notice I am sure he would be glad to set us all up in a group.
    Something to think about...[​IMG]
