Dave from Jaw-ga (that woudl be Georgia for the southern impared)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 



After lurking and reading for probably a year, I figured it was about time I took 20 seconds and set up membership here.  This forum has become my favorite for smoking and q info.


Ok,  off to the obligatory info on myself.....


In law enforcement for 34 years, semi-retired (as in retired on Friday and started back on Monday at the same job as a 38 hours a week "part timer", love the two checks though).  Started smoking meats on a Holland Grill classic in the early 1980's but recently gave this to a good friend after their gasser gave up the ghost and I bought a Weber Summit S-670 uber gasser. Bought a 18.5" WSM in 2005 and never looked back as charcoal is in a league all it's own in terms of flavor.  Still have the WMS, and have added a Weber Q 100 for portability and picked up an Orion cooker for $40 at a HD clearance (odd little thing, but it makes a nice place to prop my WSM lid when I check the meat).


I'll stop rambling now.....


Oh, as a test of posting photos, here is one from 2005 of my smoking meats buddy making sure the squirrels stay in the trees.

Thanks for the welcome messages.  As long as I've been lurking I feel like I know you all already too!!!


I took the dog photo because of where she was. I had just loaded up the WSM with charcoal which is why the smoke was still white. No food on there yet when the photo was taken. Thin and blue is the only way to go...


I smoked a "ready to cook" ham & a dozen or so sausages yesterday and totally forgot to charge the camera before hand so I guess I need to be put in Q-view time out.  Sorry....


But again, thanks for all the welcomes
