Been watching this site for quite a while just mainly doing some reading and getting ideas from ya. Decided to finally introduce myself and make it official.
Name's Rain. Im hailing from Indiana and I've been smokin for a few years. Mostly just small family stuff. Never got to do a huge smoke. Wanted to expand into doing a nice size Memorial Day Fest and see how things go. I have been the kind of person lately that doesn't like to buy things premade anymore. I started making much of my stuff from scratch so I've taken some recipes from here and other sites, put my own little twist on them and made my own version. Everything from sauces and sides to rubs and marinades. Still dabblin in anything i can try out next.
I am a pipefitter and a CAD designer. Since I wanted to expand my smoke sizes I thought I might start with a bigger smoker. Right now I just have a 30" vertical. Not the greatest but it works for what I do. Wanted something better and decided to use my CAD skills and design a smoker out of the 500 gal propane tank I have sitting in my yard. Got the CAD part done, just need to actually start the physical part. We will see how long it takes for that to get finished. LOL
Well just wanted to throw myself out there and introduce myself. And thank all you guys for the information I got from reading threads all this time.
Happy Smokin Ya'll!
