Hello and greetings from Needville, TX!
I just finished building my first smokehouse out behind the garage. I am a complete newby to meat smoking, but am looking forward to my new hobby!
I started this because my wife's grandmother lost her son (he had down's syndrome and was 64) back in November, and I needed a way to keep her engaged (this is also how I've ended up building a chicken coop). Her knowledge, along with all the great folks here will be key to making this a success. I must admit that I've been lurking around here for the last few weeks during my build. You guys and gals sure do seem to be pretty generous with great advice!
