Hey All! Awesome site you have here! I've smoked meats off and on for the last 15 years, from Hawaii to North Carolina(Yup, I was in the military). Seems everywhere I have gone, folks do things in different ways with different ingredients. I have picked up a bit here and there, but never really refined my own style. I always had one person or another giving regional tips and advice so my meats would be close to what the locals liked. Now I have settled down in OK and I'm working on a rub that is uniquely mine and a way of smoking that brings out a bit of Americana. I love to experiment with wood blends(pecan and apple make a great blend, btw) and spice combinations, so I will post my findings as they turn out. One thing I have ALWAYS wanted was a big, brick and stucco smoker, and that is gonna be my project for this summer. I found a great set of plans, which I fully intend to modify, lol! I will post pics and such as we get the work done. Anyways, Hello one and all and Happy Smoking!
