Smokin Okie reporting in

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Met a few of the SMF gang at the Stillwater Contest and they invited me to drop by.

I'm not new to Smokin' been doing it in some fashion since the 1960's when we bought brisket for 10 cents a pound, cooked it at 180 (although we didn't have a thermometer).

I've gone through a number of the smokers out there, but currently own 3 FEC 100's. I'm the non-paid moderator of the Cookshack Forum, got drafted into that position because I love to talk Q. I was previously a member of the National BBQ Association Board of Directors and taught competition classes at the national convention.

I'll be dropping by mainly for the Competition threads, that's pretty much my free time for the next few months. trying to get in some practice before a $50,000 contest in AR next month. Did okay in Stillwater last week, 12th overall (with a BAD brisket score) so hope to do better this weekend at Enid.

I'm also a Retired Air Force Lt. Colonel, so drop and gimme 20 pushups

If you have any comp questions, let me know. I'm also a certified Table Captain and Judge
