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 th_dunno-1[1].gif  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 !! 30.gif owell now its time to do some more up grades banana_smiley.gif      anyway was just saying Hi and will be lurking around here soaking up all the great info  Thanks !

Welcome to the forum,  I don't know what a SFB is but if you had a grease fire I can guess it isn't an offset smoker.  Thankfully all you burned was an awning,  I get my smoker going and leave it unattended fairly often.  If you hadn't been attentive your post may have been completely different


" Hi new to the forum, I'm here because I am living in a hotel until the repairs to my house are finished!"


Again welcome, hope to see some Q view from you soon.

Welcome I am also from Sacramento Area. Looks like you are already on your way to becoming a great smoker. There is a great group of Ladies and Dirt bags(Gentlemen) here that are usually more than happy to lend a hand.
