Howdy from Sugar Land Texas!

  1. Yea, so...another hobby is just what a 52 year old guy needs, right?

    So, here I am.  I love to cook, and wanted to begin to learn to smoking techniques.  I've owned an "old smokey", and various other charcoal smokers over the years.  The past few months I've been scouring the interwebs for an entry level smoker, and settled upon a Masterbuilt Stainless 30.

    I brought it home tonight, and will season it tomorrow night.  We'll cook Saturday to prep for the super bowl.  

    Looking forward to learning alot.

    My wife is worried....as once I immerse myself in a hobby...it's usually very time consuming and very expensive...LOL.

    Looking forward to getting to know you all.
