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.
