I've posted in a few other threads and just noticed this forum so I thought I'd pop in and introduce myself. My name's Dallas Young and I'm out here in the square states, living in Orem, UT. BBQ isn't a big thing out here. For most of the people I know, if you put a few hot dogs on a grill, they'll call it a BBQ. So I'm doing my best to show them the error of their ways.
I've been grilling for a while, for my age anyway since I'm a spry 34 years old. But BBQ and smoking are new to me. I recently bought the Chargriller Smokin' Pro with SFB and have taken full advantage of the massive mod thread for that smoker (a big thanks to everyone that contributed to that thread. It's been incredibly helpful and a ton of fun to read). And with as much fun as I had modifying that smoker, I'm planning on building my own from the ground up. I'm not sure when I'll start to tackle that one, but count on me posting pics and asking for help along the way once I start.
Anyway, a huge thanks to all the contributors on this site. I've wanted to find some experienced smokers for a while now to pick their brains, but like I said that's tough to come by out here. I've learned an absolute ton from this site.
Meanwhile, here's a few pics of my Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys I smoked. The pics aren't great because my phone doesn't have a very good camera. But the birds were awesome. Here's Thanksgiving:
