I'm a reader of the SMF forums for some time and decided to join. I have been smoking and barbeque for many years. Currently I have a Weber 22 1/2" kettle grill, a Weber Smoky Mountain smoker, a Weber gasser, a Charbroil Big Easy propane IR cooker, and a large MasterBuilt smoker insulated and converted to electric. I also have quite a collection of cast iron that I sometimes use on the fire pit.
I am retired and have lived in northern West Virginia for 4 years. Previously, I lived and worked in Southern Illinois.
One of my other hobbies is blacksmithing. I finally have a coal forge set up in my workshop (I moved it and all of my tools from my shop in southern illinois). I built a shop building and only need a good stump section to support my 300 pound anvil.
