Hello from western Wisconsin

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone. I`m a 37 year old fixture designer/CNC programmer from western WI. I`,ve been building my own smokers and smoking meat for 3 years and grilling for alot longer. So far i`ve built a RF and a UDS. I just got a ET-732 which is going on its maiden journey tomorrow smoking a 10 lb picnic and a 8 lb butt for my sons 9th birthday.

Hey Wi..hearty welcome. Sounds like you are getting the wide world of bbq pits figured out here. Are you interested in electrics at all? I aint bought no steenken charcoal or wood in many moons. Nobody has nagged that the finished product is much worse than when I had the 10 cords of rotten wood in the backyard to feed the ravenous maw of the offset. Whats up with that? lol

Ya last summer and if u want to keep a UDS at 250 -15 helps control the temp but it burns charcoal like crazy to maintain it this winter. Trust me i did it

Big wheel I have a good supply of constant fresh seasoned wood so no bother for me right now and like the offset have not done much with electrics but I see your point

Hey are a blessed fellow to get all that free wood. I am way too lazy to go cut some..even if I could figure how to get my old chainsaw cranked and know where to go.  Now if we had a few guest workers around I have two big pee can trees and enough fruit trees to make Johnny Apple Seed jealous..which so far has provided fodder for my electric babies very admirably. Even throw a chunk in the trusty gas grilling instrument occasionally.

She apple trees are looking sorta shabby..maybe had to quit cutting chunks out of them for a while.
