Hello from Mi.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Been a lurker for about a year now, decided that I MUST join!

So far, this forum has helped my smoking experience expand beyond the chore stage to the enjoyment stage.

I thank SMF for that

I will have pics of the last few slabs of ribs I have done as soon as I slap another hard drive into this computer.

I decided I was going to be true and bought one of the "barrel" type smokers last year, said to myself "self get rid of the propane grill" biggrin.gif

So now I only cook on the smoker, no slam to the gas guys intended.

lastly....GO WINGS!!!!!!!!

wow thats a lot to plant, I just have a small backyard in Berkley.

Discovered the joys and tribulations of gardening over the last few years, with the weather, and loss of bees.

How do I upload pics to Qview?

Is it just the upload feature? I didnt see it mention anything about "qview"

White Cloud used to go thru Riley Center when I worked at Armada Tube. Golfed mondays at Belle River. Bought alot of sodas by the 12 pack at the little party store on the corner.

And another welcome from another Michigander! Grew up in Ypsitucky and now live in Hell. Got some fine folks here to hlep ya out with whatever question ya might have.

Illini, Ya just can't compare basketball to hockey. Kinda like boiling your ribs instead of smoking slow and low.eek.gif

Lou - You are correct. Hoops fans in the Big Motor are only bottom feeders in Hockeytown.

Ypsitucky? Count me as yet another born in KY who came 'north' for work. (my grandparents and great-grandparents did this, too) I always crack up when I hear that used.

My grand parents came south from da UP for work so my folks were already in the area. Was quite a mixed bag I grew up with but wouldn't trade it for anything and man can I tell some stories. I use the Ypsitucky term with affection.
