  1. Good to be here folks! I thought I'd join up since I just started building my smoker. I've been smoking on an old smokey for a while now, and have developed a great addiction to smoking meat! I've been getting some good compliments on the food and have been spending more and more time at it. I can now justify the cost of a new build! I'm starting off with a 16 in schedule 40 pipe. I've cut all the pieces for the fire box and vertical smoke box out of 3/8 steel and got the fire box mostly assembled. I think it turned out pretty good for someone who has never built anything outta metal (although the grinding disks are getting expensive). Anyway I hope to spend some time on here sharing it with you folks.

    Howdy and welcome from down the road in Elgin. Good luck on your build and don't forget to post pics of both your build and qview.

    Welcome to SMF Oldduke45.  I'm not from Texas but I married a Texas Aggie whose roommate was from Brenham.  Seems I remember my favorite ice cream on the entire planet is made in Brenham, TX; Blue Bell Ice Cream.   I was just telling my wife about your post and she said "Yep, Brenham.  Tell him to send us some!"  [​IMG]

    Glad you're here and looking forward to seeing you around the forum.
