My name is Scotty. I have been scouring this website for the last year or so and finally decided to join. I am actually in the midst of going professional with what has been a hobby for many years. I am opening a smokehouse/deli up here in Humboldt County. I am currently in renovation stage and building the stock needed for such a venture. This include a vertical smoker build. I have also posted some pictures of some of my gear. This website has provided invaluable information and I hope I can contribute to such a great forum.
