Hi Everyone,I'm Oldsarge1 from Lynchburg, Tn. We just finished building our house here about three years ago and I had Half a Pallet of Brick left over. I had been reading the forum here for about a year or so and getting the monthly news letters. I decided to use the rest of the brick and try to build a smoker,I'm new at this so I went to the Libraery of Congress web site and found Pictures and drawings of old smokers from the late 1700's on foreward. I found a set of plans I liked and scaled it down to fit my oneday to be courtyard. the past two winters I've been helping a friend to tare down a few Barns for the wood so I also used some 100yr old wood along with the Brick. I wish I could Post a couple of Pic's of it but I don't know how right now. I'll be happy to post pic's when I figure out how. It's a home made smoker but it works. I've been reading the forum for awhile now and have really enjoyed it. I hope in the future I'll also be of some help to another newbe. Right now
the wife wants me to start out out Smoking some cheese,she say's it's cheeper to replace than meat, I think it's because she likes a glass of win in the evening and wants smoke cheese to go with her wine. I got into this when the wife found a book on how to smoke Meat the old fashion way.
A friend also came to visit from Texas and Brought a Ham from a hog he killed on his ranch. soooo,
what better time to jump in and learn, so here I am. I would like to say thanks to Barry for putting me in the right direction.
Take Care Everyone
