  1. Morning everyone!  New to the forums.  The BBQ bug bit me while I was living in Texas during my Army years.  Have been smoking some briskets and butts since I moved back but no where near like I did before.   I have a Brinkman horizontal w/ off set firebox that smokes well, but I catch heck trying to keep the temps up enough to cook...  a brisket is an all day and then some event.

    I was doing some searching on fridge conversions and found this site.  I think I found a(nother) new internet home. 

    Other interests are learning to smoke cheese, sausages, and who knows what else.  Plan is to build/convert something into a vertical unit to hopefully increase cook times.  I look forward to learning from everyone.

    Welcome to SMF. Theres lots of great information here that could help with temp control on your smoker.

    You will also get lots of great advise form making sausage. If you are going to do cheese and inexpensive way would be to get a A-Maze-N-Smoker. They work great and can be used with your current smoker.
