New guy in Cincinnati.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

Just joined SMF this morning.  I've been following the thread now for a few months and decided to join. 

 

I was born and raised in Atlanta on good Southern cue, and moved to Cincinnati 18 months ago for a job.  Married to my wife with no kids (yet).

 

I started smoking 3 years ago on a CharBroil American Gourmet.  As a beginner, it was frustrating starting on a cheap smoker.  As I learned and picked up skills along the way, I was still able to turn out some decent bbq out of that thing despite wildly inconsistent temperatures and having to baby-sit the fire basically all day.  I decided to upgrade about a month ago and searched for the right smoker for hours (wanted to stay in the $300-$500 dollar range).  I was able to find a guy on craigslist who builds smokers here in Cincinnati and specializes in reverse flow offset designs.  He had 10-12 for sale, so I bought one last week (pics below).

I'll be smoking two whole chickens and 3 lamb shanks this afternoon as a first run.  Just finished running a dry burn to take care of the oils and paint on the smoker.  Pics to come soon!

 

Take care.
