Hello from Arkansas

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
OK, I am new to BBQ. My cousin who now is deceased built a smoker for a guy who never paid him. When he died I bought it and moved it over to my dad's home. I bought it mostly to help my cousin(his wife) with the bills and keep something he had built. I have been experimenting a little with it. I have a green egg at my home and do a lot of smoking on it. I'm 41 and a insurance salesman. I have been in the P&C business for 14 years. I have a wife and two kids, daughter who is 16 and son who is 10. Like I said I have smoked a lot on my green egg and just getting to know the horizontal smoker a little. Great site and should learn a lot here. Rick

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.
