Hello from KY...

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, been lurking a while, but figured it was finally time to join up.

My name is Dan, I'm in my mid twenties, married 3 years and have my first child (a BOY!) cooking in the oven. Didnt want him to choke in the smoker...

We recently bought a kingfisher kooker (backyard bonanza w/rotisserie) and have been burning it up for the last few weeks. Probably 300lbs during the month of February alone! Some of the best birds I've ever had. Not to mention all the beef, pork, fatties, rabbit, and mutton its seen. I know the friends and family have been enjoying it as well..

Anyways, looking forward to getting to know some of you, and learning from the best.

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.

Thanks for the warm welcome..

I actually recognize slim from another board I lurk on (louisvillemustangs), although he probably has no clue who i am.. I might have 100 posts in probably 3-4 years of reading there everyday. haha.

As far as qview... I will attempt to get some up soon. Not sure if we will be smoking anything this weekend. Talking about putting together a batch of burgoo in the kettle though.. Just play it by ear and see what happens!

You'll like it here cause there are abunch of good folks here that would just love to help you out with just about anything to do with smoking. We really like to have newbies here because they can bring in a new propective to how things are done.

Eric, I am in Owensboro..

Nice to see somebody pretty close! I make it down your way for work occasionally. We do a little bit of work for the Burger King's in this region from time to time. Last year or so we redid the concrete sidewalks at one of the madisonville stores (and central city as well), and some small work at the other store in madisonville.
