Northern Cali Newbie

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am extremely new to all of this, I have been able to grill all sorts of meats over time, and people seem to be happy with it. I think it is time to actually figure out the specifics to each type of meat and take my skills to the next level. I plan on fabricating my own smoker/grill, I was in Bass pro shop and saw the Horizon grill, and think I can make something like it.

Looking forward to reading more.

Thanks, I am going up to Oregon Next week for Black Friday, I am going to scrounge some parts tomorrow and see if I can get this grill started. So far after looking around think I am going to start out by making a smaller smoker to get the hang up it, then I will move up and make something bigger.
