post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I'm Charles and I live in South Central Mississippi. My experience with BBQ is mostly just home cooking, but several years ago, I began to 'tinker' with the whole process. I wanted to make my own rubs, my own sauces, etc.. instead of being forced to use what the grocery store thought I should like. During this time, I developed an entire fascination with smoking, and grilling and want to move more in the direction of cooking at fairs and festivals, and perhaps even some competition cooking. Still have a lot to learn before that time, but I'm enjoying the ride so far.

I'm hoping to soon build my own reverse flow smoker. I know all about the popular ones on the market, but there's a few custom features I want to have on mine, therefore I hope to start building my own within the next month or two.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would you mind updating your profile to show the other SMF members where you are located?  Might meet a few neighbors!


We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.


If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!


If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
