To all, Thanks for the invite. While searching to see if I could use Bradford Pear for smoking ( Due to the recent Ice storms here in central Arkansas ) I came upon your website. BBQ, Smoking and crawfish boils, are things I love to do for family and friends. At 58 I have been making my own rubs and sauces for years to accompany what I cook. A welder by trade for a gas exploration company I have built BBQ smokers that fit on trailers to decks. But I use a Charbroil Smoking Pro with the side fire box. Had the first one for over ten years and finally got tired of rebuilding the spot between the firebox and grill and bought my second which sadly seems to be made out of tin foil. But it does work for me and my two dogs. When not working I enjoy fishing, hunting, and Riding my Harley's, the latter being most likely where you will find me when the weather allows. Looking forward to new ideas and recipes. Take care, Eazy.
