I found this site or the one just before this one about a year ago when someone on the yahoo site (I think Sam - who I got hooked on building drums now) told me everyone moved from yahoo to here.
Seems like there was only a handful of regulars then ... TulsaJeff, Dutch, SoFlaQer. Monty, Ultramag, Dacdots, Gypc, Gunslinger, Meowey, Smoked, Cheech, Up In Smoke, Pigcicles, Dickey Doodles aka Smokey Okie and Canjun Smoker â€“ and maybe a few more.
These guys were great answering my questions like:
Whatâ€™s a fatty? Whatâ€™s an ABT? Whatâ€™s Buckboard Bacon? Whatâ€™s a packer Brisket? Only things I ever smoked before then were sausages, herbs and jerky in a cardboard box with a light bulb and a tin pie pan for the wood chips and Iâ€™d been doing that for about 30 years thanks to Mother Earth news.
I found an ECB All-In-One on Amazon.com and tried Dutchâ€™s Wicked Beans, SoFlaQers finishing sauce and Jeffâ€™s Smoked Turkey.
I immediately felt at home here and wanted to help were I could. Jeff was such a sweetheart setting this all up and keeping things going. I know itâ€™s not easy to keep up with. This has been an amazing site under his direction and with the help of Dutch and Monty. I donâ€™t think anyone could have dreamed how far this would have gone!
Thank you dear Jeff, Dutch, and Monty for all you have done and all you have given us in this forum and in the building of such a fine family. Also thanks to Abigale for supporting Jeff in this quest for the best forum on the net â€“ because I know she has lost a lot of time with her family to keep this thing going.
This place is one big family and I spend more time with this family than my blood family. I look forward to meeting more of you in the future. Big Hugs!
