Southeast Missouri

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey all! I'm 42 married with a 4 year old...yea I was a procrastinator!
Waited to long to get started smokin too! I'm strictly an amateur smoker.
I have a Brinkman Pitmaster, a gas smoker, and a water smoker. Love the flavor with the Brink but it sure is a pain to keep the right temp! I plan to upgrade this summer to a Horizon or maybe a Traeger or Louisiana. I like the idea of building my own fire but I am leaning towards the ease of the Traeger or Louisiana. Any input would be great!

Welcome to SMF Bizones. Love is something you don't rush, so if it took you this long, then she is worth it. Good luck with your 4 year old. They only get bigger. You will too with all the wealth of information on this forum.

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you are well on your way.icon_smile.gif
I have a Traeger Texas and love it. I have no experience with the Louisiana grill. Most everything I have heard has been good. There are quite a few folks on the forum that are pelletheads. Maybe you will get lucky and a Louisiana Grill owner will reply.icon_smile.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.
