I think I have a BBQ (OCD)!?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I have been smokin & grillin for years now but I am fairly new to building smokers. I love this forum! Endless info and endless good people! That being said, I think I have a problem?

I think I have an Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) for BBQ and building smokers, grills, pits!? Seems like everything I see while I am out going to the store, driving to work, etc. is a possible smoker or part for a smoker. What I mean by that for example is I will see a large LP tank, utility box, USPS drop box, dumpster, Water Tower or whatever and I think to my self Hmmm, that would make a great smoker!? I am also very aware of trees these days? I also find myself standin in Sams lookin at the ribs, butts, brisket, chicken very often and buyin tons of meat on a whim.
Am I a freak or does anybody else experience anything like this? confused.gif

A local company has been tearing up the streets and laying down 36 dia. steel pipe for natual gas bulk delivery system to the copper mine. The other day I a saw a 60 inch section just sitting all by it's lonesome that had be thinking "Lang Clone", so I asked one of the pipe layers what they did with sections like that. He said that they weld it on to a longer section of pipe and bury it. He said that if there is anything left over it's maybe 10-12 inches long and that they just recycle it.

Oh well, the quest for pipe continues.

I know what you are saying. I went boating this weekend and on the way to the lake several people had somehow obtained those big channel markers (red & green similar to the pics below) that mark the edges of the river channel. They were using them in their landscaping or at the side of the road and put a mailbox in it. I know sometimes they come loose and drift ashore. I was thinking that SmokinSteve could probably convert one of those things into a cool smoker.

Welcome to the addiction from just up 19 from ya. Kinda fun figuring what all could be made into a smoker. I also am kinda surprised that I really look forward the the sale circulars from the grocery stores now just to see what meat is on sale.

Welcome JOK3R,

I sure do know what you mean. I thought I was the only freak that looked at an LP tank and thought,.... Hmmm...... that would make a great smoker. I had to drive out of state for work last week and the whole time, there and back, I was looking for yard sales or someone with a smoker sitting outside for sale. It is a sickness, but there are definitely worse ones to have. At least we get to eat well with this sickness. Good luck and hope to see some posts of your next smoke.

Excessive Smoking Disorder.. I like that! lol - Yeah, I don't really consider it too much of a problem either! I see it as therapy for the other affliction I have called STRESS!
