Rookie Smoker

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I am Josh from southern Illinois. I am a rookie when it comes to smoking. I just built my own homemade smoker out of a 55 gallon drum. Tried it out sunday with some pork chops and everything turned out awesome. Can't wait to try more.

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.
