Been hangin round the site for a little while now, checking things out. Looks like a good bunch of folks. Grew up in west central FL. Joined the AF working on A-10s and moved to Alaska. Loved it up there. Got orders out to Tucson where I have been for the last 4.5 yrs (trying to get back up North). Not new to smoking, mostly seafood though. Have gone thru several smokers in the past and am now building a monster RF (well, biggest one I've ever had). I'll post the build once I finger out how to post pics (seen the "how to", gonna need it). Gonna take my time and do it right so the postings may be slow....I look forward to talking with ya'll. What is there not to love about tanks?!
