I'm really happy!!!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I'm really happy that all of you have finally been able to meet me. Just kidding. Ran across this web site on my search for a new smoker. Have been smoking for the past 6 years on a little New Braunsfeld side firebox smoker...with some success. Just bought a used Lang 48" patio smoker and am trying it out this weekend....have been having one little problem I was hoping you could help out with...have the firebox all set up, coals hot, now time to put the meat in....whenever I put the cat into the smoker, I cant get the lid shut before he runs out...any suggestions? actually going to be smoking some ribs and chicken for the first time out this weekend. few friends, cold beer, view of the rockies off the deck and patio..tough to beat....if you happen to be in denver (actually SE Aurora) come on by or drop me a note and i'll give you directions. As Ed says...smoke on. Hoping to have a lot of fun and learn a lot on this site.

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 Chris, thanks for joining our SMF family!

Originally from NY, I'd first tell you to put out a hit on the cat.. I know a doberman goon that'd do it cheep...

Now in Texas, just send 'em to Huntsville.. we got a really neat chair there that gets used a lot, runs up the electric bill tho... icon_mrgreen.gif

Great score on a used Lang Patio 48! Fire up that baby and get the camera smokin' and post lots of Qview of your smoker and smokees! Make us drool!

Hi Chris. Welcome from Austin, TX. Maybe you could put the cat in before you start the coals. Sorry, a dog person here.
