Longtime Smoker, Second time Builder

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Ahoy, hoy!


My name is Mike McKinney and i live in Beaver Falls, PA.


I have been smoking meats for about 15 years, and started in a homemade smoker I called "Frankenstein."


Parts from an old charcoal grill and a galvanized garbage can were connected with a flexible aluminum dryer hose.


It was ugly. It was cheap. It was wonderful.


Have had an offset smoker for 5 years, but am in the process of building a new one using a 275 Gal oil tank.


I've started a thread in 'Other Builds' for updates on how it's going.


This is a great site, and I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible!


No smoke, no thanks!!
