Howdy from The Hawkeye State!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have lurked for a couple of years before registering for a name on this web site. Then lurked for many more before posting here. I thought it was about time to introuduce my self.

I've grilled for many years on Webber 22in. charcoal grills (had 3 of them now) and I am on my second rotisserie for them. I've used charcoal, wood, and lump for them. I've used a small propane grill for traveling for work accross the USA as a Superintendent in commerical construction.

A few years ago I had a chance to pick up a once used GOSM. The wife could not understand why I drug that home (there are a many stories to tell about my cook'in passions, LOL). After a couple of (not more than 2 times each) she has been sold! Now ready to go a bit bigger with a new one this year.

I make my own BBQ sauce that I have been working on for many years and would like to bottle and sell it but, I think there are too many on the shelves now any way. I make several gallons a year and give near 1/2 of it away to friends and family. Freeze it in containers and lasts well, never gets hard, LOL! Got's a whole lot of goodness and a bit of a bite!

Hello I'm Denny O! Glad to "meat" ya!

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
