Hi from Louisiana

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I am from Denham Springs La. (Near Baton Rouge) I have been smoking for a while casually. I have a cheapo Brinkman (R2D2) which I find myself loading to the gills on a lot of weekends, so I decided it was time to step it up a notch. I currently have a custom 48" SFB being fabricated by Mr. Bell and I can't wait to get my hands on it. I love to cook, so probably like many of you I find myself as the unofficial caterer for all my friends and family. I have a Jambalya rig that I can feed 100 out of. It's also not uncommon for me to boil 200-300 lbs of crawfish. I loved BBQ and smoked anything, so I'm looking fwd to learning a bunch on here. I have a ton of guinea pigs waiting to be fed.

Welcome to the forum. I can't wait to see some qview of your smokes and especially would love to see some qview of you making jambalya and crawfish. I spent some time down in your neck of the woods when I use to travel for work and I love the crawfish and jambalya.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have a big Jambalaya tailgate coming up next month for the LSU - Alabama baseball game. It should produce some good pics.

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.

Welcome from Slidell,

My in-laws live in Denham Springs so I try to avoid the area. Keep in touch, there are enough Louisiaina SMF members maybe we need to develop a chapter.
