Newbie from Bardstown, KY

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My name is Brian and I finally decided to buy a Big Brick from Bass Pro. It should be here this weekend. I have 3 little ones 7,6 and 3. Lucky for me the 6 yr old boy loves to eat as much as I do. I've got two friends that have been smoking for awhile now that I've been sampling there goods. I'm ready to start smoking my own now. I need to find a wood supply, where's the best places? I'm glad I found this site. Thanks

Welcome to the SMF Brian. I know you're going to enjoy the big block. Consider a new door therm, and a spare tank, you'll see why. It's all good my friend.

Welcome to the SMF. I'm sure you have lots of hickory there. Any fruitwood will work great too. To get you started, Lowes has hickory and mesquite.

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.

We do get barrel lids from Jim Beam occasionally. We tried some with a brisket and didn't care for it very much. My friend uses a wood smoker and sticks pretty much to cherry only.
