I'd like to share my story how I got my smoker (smokers really gonna make a USD as well) for free. I live in Oklahoma (OKC metro) and am a HUGE Oklahoma Sooners fan. I also teach school and coach (HS basketball and MS football). During the end of year football banquet, which happened to be the same week as OU vs OSU, some of the coaches were trying to get me and another coach (an OSU fan) to wager on the game. I really didn't want to bet and the OSU fan could see that and he was giving me hell about it. The coach also coaches varsity basketball with me. I am the freshman coach and he is the sophomore coach and we are responsible for driving to all away games. The head coach and head assistant never drive. So, I say to him here is the bet if you agree: I take OU and you take OSU, straight up, and the loser has to drive to all away games and the winner gets to turn it in and get paid. There were 27 trips at a minimum of $10 a trip. My bus driving check well covered the MES and will cover the expenses for a USD (esp since I found a drum this morning for free).
I'm gonna use my smoker this Sunday and will post some pics. I also can't wait to get started on USD. Some of the pics in the USD forum provide some great ideas.
I appreciate all the advice that was given to me in another thread I started. i didn't get all my answers here but I got enough to get me where i needed to be.
