Newbie from Minnesota

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Great Board,
I saw someone posted that there was a bbq for sale in Minneapolis.
I bought it!! It will work fine for my everyday grill and smoker.
I purchased a bakery proofing oven and my fried has converted it to a propane smoker.
He did his deer in it and said it is great. hopefully I get it back.
I would like to make some other smokers soon.
I deal in industrial controls and have plenty of Temp controllers and thermocouples to work with.
Also have a plasma cutter and wirefeed welder to do any heavy work.
I cannot wait to explore this site and try some recipes.

Wish I was typing this from the Boundary Waters as we speak, but I may NEVER get my dream to go back there to come true.

Welcome aboard Phil. The Minnesota contingent just keeps growing here.
Is this the smoker you bought by any chance?

If so you got yourself a nice unit. I considered it but I just didn't need the large vertical.

Welcome to the SMF. Sounds like you can be handy at making yourself a great smoker. It's all good my friend.

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.
