Excited to be a part of the forum.
I live in Jacksonville, FL in the Mandarin suburb.
I built an outdoor kitchen recently with a replica of the Wilber D Hogg smoker I found online: http://www.ibiblio.org/lineback/bbq/sid.htm. Below is a picture of the first smoke.
I love the process - splitting the wood, prepping the food, starting the fires, waiting/drinking, and finally enjoying the food. Luckily, I have a very supporting wife and dog who both enjoy the results!
