New guy from Sarasota Fl.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Well, I'm a new guy (patio daddy o) to the forum and have been smoking for about a year. I'm looking forward to learning from folks that have more experience due to the fact that I have just a basic knowledge of the art of smoking.

I just finished a project (my first) 120 gallon smoker that I put together from scratch and because of the support of a longtime good friend (randya), it turned out fairly well.

My friend posted my build before I joined the forum and after seeing how helpful and positive the members were, I had to give it a try.

I'm in Sarasota, Florida, in my mid 50s, and just looking to enjoy life.

I enjoy restoring old cars, and tinkering in the shop on one type of project or another.

Well that’s my story. I hope to get plenty of help and direction going forward and give back where I am able.

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.
