Introduction From AR

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello all! My name is Wes and I'm from Northeast Arkansas. I love to cook in general. Although new to actual smoking, been grilling frequently for years. I have even tried to smoke butts on my grill...turned out fair, but not as good as I feel that I could do. I don't have a "REAL" smoker yet. I started a small one out of a hot water tank a few years ago and never finished it....decided it wasn't as big as I wanted it. I have a 250 gal. propane tank that is going to be a smoker (hopefully in the near future - I have read and am heeding the warnings from the forums). Matter of fact, I have been lurking in here for the past three days. So much, the wife has threatened to throw the cpu out. I just start reading and can't quit. You guys are killin' me with the recipes and all the pictures....can't wait to get started, may have to buy a small smoker to suffice until I get the big one finished. Sorry for the rambling...just so fired up right now. It's great to be able to have the resources that are here. Maybe someday I can contribute to future newbies. Keep the smoke goin'!

Welcome aboard Wes. You've found the right place for smoking, especially if you're new to the game. There's a ton of information on here and a bunch of people willing to help. Speaking of NE Ark I was in Jonesboro last weekend.

RE: Theater

Part of the theater is still standing. There is a building where they filmed part of "Walk The Line"....the wood shop portions. They actually filmed quite a bit of the movie here in town. My wife's grandfather and J.R. were best friends growing up. They have several small concerts here, raising money for a museum that they are planning to build. They're around the Fourth of July. I'm very familiar with Mammoth Spring, I grew up in the Hardy area. Mammoth Spring was the closest place to get a cold one....lol. Have trout fished hundreds of times at Dam 3 Access and Cold Springs curve. Also too many canoe trips to remember. Thanks for the Welcome.

RE: Jonesboro

Jonesboro is about 40 mins from me. Are you familiar with where Marked Tree or Lepanto is? Lepanto is about 8 miles from my house. Thanks for the Welcome.
