New Guy from Central Texas!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey Y'all. I have been wanting a smoker for years and finally bought a used one this weekend. I can't wait to absorb all the great knowledge that is floating around out here and hope to meet some of you at one time or another. I live and work in Central Texas. I am interested in smoked foods, dirt and street motorcycles, firearms, reloading and bullet casting, PDT_Armataz_01_36.gif
below is my photo and the photos of my new found love. PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

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.

Hello again from Texas! Thanks for all the warm welcomes! Hopefully I will have some QView to share soon. I am having a base welded to my cooker today and am in the process of building a fire barrel to make pre-burned wood for the smoker, when I go for those all night smokes. icon_mrgreen.gif

My wife thinks I am crazy for starting another hobby, because I tend to go into it full bore, PDT_Armataz_01_42.gif but I bet she changes her tune when she gets her first taste of some good ol' brisket or ribs. points.gif
