New Guy from NorCal

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I am Joe from NorCal. I have been Grilling for years and was given a Jade Range water smoker a few years ago. I finally got it cleaned up and modified to burn charcoal and wood. Smoked chicken and ribs a few weeks ago and there is no going back, I am a convert. Found the forum while trying to find more info on meat smoking, jackpot. I am looking forward to learning more about smoking, equipment and maybe hooking up with some California cookers.

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.
