  1. Just signed on to this forum tonight.  In fact, this is the first time I've ever joined a forum at all.  So I'm not sure what I'm doing in terms of this medium, but I'm sure I'll stumble my way and eventually figure out how it works.

    I'm from the town of Port Orchard.  It's a relatively small community on the Kitsap Peninsula, just west of Seattle - a ferry boat ride away.

    I'm married an have 6 children.  Yes I said 6.  So our crew can throw down some smoked meat in a hurry.

    I've got 3 younger kids - 8 months and two 4 year olds.  And I have 3 older kids - 15, 18 and 21.  All still living at home.  Raise the first three, then got connected with foster care and adopted 3 more.  Turns out we weren't cut out for foster care, got too attached and couldn't say good by.

    I'm fairly new to smoking.  Just started less than a year ago.  I have a Bradley smoker and I love it.

    I enjoy soccer, disc golf and camping.

    Yay for another PNW smoker!  Just start poking around the forum and checking out whatever sounds interesting.  You will learn a lot in a hurry, and there's always great help if you have questions.  Wait til you tell the family you can't wait to smoke a fatty, and you need to take pictures of it, too...
