Hi from the Midwest

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi All!!
Glad I found this Wonderful site!!
Being a REAL Newbie, but able to follow a recipe/ most of the time.
I have a Lil' Smokey it just works in the summer the electric heat element is to low powered for any other season. Use a 140V AC Variac to raise the temperature in cooler weather.
Planning on building a smoker from a 100# LP tank and a electric fork truck, battery charger cabinet.
Hoping for your experience to RUB off on me!
Thank You

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.
