Hello everybody My name is Kent and live in Sacramento California, found this site one day a few months back and been having a blast smoking every weekend. started back about ten years ago with a Little chef electric and did a lot of fish but never tried any thing else. then a couple of years back I bought a Char-Griller but did mostly just strait barbeque. would throw a few chips on the coals but that was it. now after lurking around here I got the bug and went down to lowes and got SFB and I'm hooked now. having a lot of fun doing all the mods on this rig. been doing ribs and chicken and pork butts, hoping to find me a brisket at Sams for my Sunday smoke. did have a eye opener last Tuesday when I was doing up some kabobs and veggies on the BBQ and had my first grease fire, dang it burnt a big hole in the sun screen I had up about 8 feet over the patio. bubbled all the paint on the Char-griller and lost about all the hair off my hands trying to deal with the inferno !! owell now its time to do some more up grades anyway was just saying Hi and will be lurking around here soaking up all the great info Thanks !
