Hello everyone,


My name is Bryce from McFarland, CA and I have come to this fine place to get some more advice on smoking meat and building a RF smoker. 


I'm not new to smoking and grilling, but I am looking into refining my techniques to make the best BBQ I can. I was gifted a stainless steel Cabela's vertical propane smoker from my grandpa, who bought it, used it once, and was done with it. Three years ago, I wanted to do something different from burgers, dogs, and tri-tip for July 4th, so I took out the old propane smoker (and with a little help from Alton Brown's BBQ special) put out a pretty good Boston Butt. Ever since then I've become more and more interested in perfecting the craft.


With a little lurking around the web for info, I think it has been time to upgrade from the Cabela's (super thin walls, not insulated, leaks) to something bigger and better. I have the welding skills to build my own, so I want to take the time and learn some tricks to building a great reverse flow smoker.


I'm looking forward to learning from everyone here and will keep you guys informed on my build that I want to do in 2014.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 


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 TulsaJeff. 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!
