Hello, I just joined the site a couple days ago, but have been lurking for over two years.  In those two years I found a lot of good info on here, and tried many different things. All of it turned out great, so I just figured I would join the site.


I am semi retired, so plenty of free time. I am from East Texas and live out in the country, so ugly BBQ pits are OK!  I am married to the greatest woman alive,( She is a tool nut "Buy the best one they have dear it will work better/last longer"biggrin.gif, and she makes all of our bread from scratch! God I love that woman) and have three wonderful kids. My oldest is getting married in October, the two youngest(twins) are turning two in October. Yeah we spread them out a bit....


My wife and I throw a massive Christmas party every year. Which means I spend all day tending 1 turkey fryer, 2 BBQ pits, and 1 smoker. Thank goodness my daughters soon to be husband likes to help out! 


I have a Brinkman electric smoke and grill,  1 Webber Kettle that I have had for going on two decades, 1 pit that I don't know who made it. My neighbor was going to toss it out, I grabbed it and with a little elbow grease turned it into a fine pit. Charcoal not gas. The aforementioned Turkey fryer, and a fish fryer. I also have one of those uniflame pits with the upper leveal and the side tables, got it as a gift used it awhile then parked it in the shed.


I can weld, and work metal. I do remodeling projects all the time, everything from whole house (x2) to single rooms. So I am a pretty handy guy with tools.


BBQ wise I have done, Butts, roasts, Turkeys, Tons of Hams, sausage, brisket, ribs, chicken, shoot if you can eat it I have probably grilled or Smoked it at one time or the other.


I am about to turn an old electric oven into a smoker, set and forget. Right now I am thinking the Amazing looks like a good bet for smoke generation.  I have a propane tank I always toss around making a smoker out of, but honestly cutting into it makes me nervous.icon_rolleyes.gif Most likely it will just keep sitting there. 


Well that's all I can think of, besides this smoked sausage is calling my name. See ya on the boards!
