The handle is real. I started homebrewing eons ago and became a professional brewer in 2007. I am semi-retired now, putting life and career on hold to take care of aging parents.
I am in South Carolina and near one of the greatest "Q" joints around, Henry's Smokehouse. Oh my. I'll never get to that level but I am enjoying the attempt.
I have built a small smoker from one of those cube things that wallyworld used to sell, plus an element from a grill that I bought from the goodwill. I'll post some pics.
I appreciate everything I have leaned so far and look forward to picking some brains in the future
