Nice, I have spent a few years in Sac, but I am back in my home town, a small little town called Klamath, right at the mouth of the Klamath River, south of oregon on the coast about 40 miles.

Well, with such a great welcome, I thought I would give a better background of myself. I live her in Mckinleyville, Ca. I work and spend a lot of my time in Klamath, Ca which is why I consider it my home.

I am a novice welder, and I have been on this little fabrication kick, I am currently building a bumper for one of my trucks, out of 3/16 plate.

I work in the construction field, mostly focused on renewable energy, so I was on a conference in Denver last week, of which I went to Bass Pro Shop, and saw the Horizon Smoker for ~2500, I thought to my self, I could make that for far less, well theres my next welding project. So I started searching found you guys, and here I am.

I have read up on Dry Aging so far, looks interesting. I have always had a BBQ sauce that I learned from my Grandma that no one can turn down. I have been playing around trying to get the 'perfect' tri-tip on the grill for about a year now, of which I do ok.

I will have all sorts of meats, living here in the Pacific Northwest and being a Yurok Tribal member, I catch all sorts of Salmon, Steelhead, and the ocasional white or green stergon.

Also Other meats I could be interested in cooking, range from Deer, Elk, Bear, Quail, or Grouse.

Some of the woods I have in my back yard are, Doug Fir, Black and Tan OAK, Pepperwood ( AKA Oregon Myrtle, Bay Lurel ), Madrone, Alder and probaly some random fruit woods like huckleberry or something. I know a lot of people around here use Alder and Madrone to smoke there Salmon.

Wow, didn't realize I had that much in me, but if you want to know anything else just ask.
