Howdy from small town Iowa

  1. Hi!
    My name is Brian but I answer to Breck. Not because it's a brand of cheap shampoo and other hygene products, but because my last name is Breckenridge.
    I'm not nessicerily a smoking virgin, but pretty darn close.
    Have done some heavy petting with a KC smoker and a few turkeys.
    I live in an apartment on the third floor and I'm usually poor so I'm somewhat limited to what I can have for equipment. Right now I have the aforementioned Rival KC smoker, it's done okay I guess, but I don't feel all that manly standing around and drinking beer infront of someting that looks like a table top roaster.

    Welcome to the forum.

    The only comment I have regarding the hammer and cats is to use the biggest hammer you got. [​IMG]

    Welcome from another Cental Iowa small town smoker. What small town are you from. It can't be too small if it has an apartment building 3 stories tall.
    Enjoy the forum and be sure to sign up for the 5 day online smoking course.
    Have fun.
  7. Don't you mean "Clown Zone"? Go Hawks! I'm originally from Cedar Falls, went to Iowa and am now down in SC. Just trying to figure out this smoking stuff.

    Welcome to SMF; nothing wrong with a KC Rival, it brought you here didn't it !!!
    There are a few other members here that use the same smoker. If later down the road you choose to get another smoker, that is good; can never have enough smokers !!!

    welcome breck glad you are here
  20. Thanks for the welcome everybody, this seems like a really cool place.

    And yes, Iowa is pretty much a matrix of small towns in between patches of corn. I live in Monroe. It's about 10 minutes north of Lake Red Rock.
    And surprisingly we do have a 3 story apartment complex here, I think this particular one was made espescially for people who are getting devorced or groups of kids right out of high school.
    We were all a little surprised when they built it, nothing is suppoed to be that tall around here unless it's a silo.

    As I mentioned earlier I have a Rival KC smoker which has treated me pretty good, but I'd like to upgrade. Due to lack of space on my deck I'm thinking about an vertical LP unit.
    One question though, has much gas should I expect to go through on a usual smoke?
    You guys have any particular models you're pretty proud of?
    Any I should stay away from?
