I am a Texan that lives in the Dallas Metroplex. My father was a great smoker. Had a custom smoker made by my uncle. I have worked with a small barrel smoke with fire box, but I am ready to step up my game. I am looking to build my own reverse flow smoker here in the next month. From there I want to elevate my game to the neighborhood legend. Growing up my dad would spend an entire day smoking whatever meat he could get his hands on. He fed all of the neighborhood and made a good name for himself. I am looking to replicate those memories for my children. I am glad I ran across this forum and look forward to using it as a tool to make all the mouths on our street water.
