    hello all,

    My name is michael, and I am a smoker.......hi michael

    I have been a bbq guy for a bit now, I started out with the homemade cardboard box smoker and tons of family turkey picnics.

    Then we moved into a small apartment and I converted a coleman shoebox table grill into a mini smoker and cranked out deliscious chicken legs for a year until my wife finally took pity on me and got ma a small(size of a twenty lb propane tank) char griller mini smoker.

    I used that for 4 years and now we bought a house with a bit of a yard and I quit tobacco, so my reward was a BBQ grillware stainless smoker/grill.

    I have started to cook over whole wood now with a little charcoal to get the fire rollin'
    I have finallized my rub recipe and it is written down and stored in the fire safe in the closet.

    my only wish was I found you guys sooner; even though I have enjoyed my countless trial and error smokes.

    Beyond my Que credentials I love to cook, good thing since I'm a chef.
    I like to grind and stuff homemade sausage then smoke it.

    I like to grill pizzas, and now I am experimenting with smoking cheese.

    I have been brewing beer for 7 years now, getting as good as you can buy...finally. lots of trial and errort there too. Last year I started to grow my own hops and this years crop looks mighty fine allready.

    all of my hobbies revolve around food and cooking
    anyways hi, and I am looking forward to earning a PITMASTER title.
  2. Trial and error smokes... and trial and error home brews.... kinda go well together... heheh [​IMG]

    Chef, methinks we should be neighbors. Any chance you're looking to move to Florida any time soon? Welcome to the forum! Hope you stay active and share your smoke sessions with us!
  12. Welcome to the forum.

    I am new myself but not new to smoking and I've got at least 20 years homebrewing under my belt. We bottled our last batch of the season 3 weeks ago - dunkleweizen. Should pair up well with sliced brisket.

    There's a thread in here called "Show Yourself" where you should post some pics of yourself and your equipment. If there's anything you need to know just ask. People around here are a quite friendly bunch.
