Thread Starter 
Aloha My name is Kauhi I am from Oahu HI, I am currently using a Brinkman charcoal vertical smoker which I have already mastered. I am now in the process of building me a old gym locker smoker which is in the baby stages as of now. This site is the bomb alot of info and alot of Kool members that help to answer all my questions that I may have.

Oahu Grown Smoker!

Welcome Welcome. Glad you joined the forum. I was just reading your post on your locker build. Keep us posted and post some pics if you are able to. We love to see pictures of your smoker builds or your cooking or aka Qview.

Aloha Kauhi, and welcome to SMF. I've read here about lots of builds but I don't recall seeing anything about using a gym locker for a smoker. At least since I've joined, anyway.

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.

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.
