Hey everyone, Scott here from the Richmond, VA area. Nice looking forum (and pics, gotta love the Q View pics). My family is originally from the mid-west farm land area (central IL), and I grew up on bbq pits, smokers, grills, anything that involved fire, outdoors, and fresh from the farm food. Have been limited to the grill and a smaller Master Forge vertical propane smoker for a while now (mostly due to time constraints), but dad's next door neighbor just sparked up that flame for both of us when his 108" Lang showed up while I was over there a few weekends ago. As an attempt to keep my gear acquisition syndrome in check (music, bikes, cars, etc... it's a serious disease) the wife went out and researched / bought a Brinkmann TMLE last weekend for my birthday. From what I can tell, it's a nice unit for the price and should keep me under control for quite awhile. Will start the assemble process and figuring out which mods I'll want/need tomorrow afternoon (a few 'materials' may have already been purchased for mods already, but she doesn't need to know that just yet . Anyhow - A big "Hey There" to everyone on forum, looking forward to getting addicted.
