I'm Andre, I live in the Indianapolis area.  I have always enjoyed grilling, but fell in love with smoking when my friend needed me to 'store' his tow behind Large format Propane tank top load smoker.  It had a large fire box and a massive meat area.  I had quite a few parties where he showed me the ways of southern BBQ.  Ever since then I was hooked.  

Attached is a picture of the smoker I built from my grandfathers old GE refrigerator.  I removed all the compressors and fridge parts, stripped out the insulation and replaced with fiber/ceramic high temp insulation.  Painted it a fire engine red (high temp caliper spray paint) and added some racks for the inside.    

I also use the Loki Wifi meat thermometer (recent kick starter project, that works great for tracking 4 different meat probes.  Its the small black round thing stuck to the side of the pellet hopper.  The smoker attachment is a smoke daddy pellet pro that works great for maintaining temperature.  


I am into Ribs, Brisket and Pork Shoulder.  But I am going to experiment with sausage, turkey and other meats.  I am always looking for advise on rubs, marinades and other techniques.  


Looking froward to contributing to the community.
