Hello from Nor Cal

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by duramax mike, Nov 9, 2007.

  1. Hello all, I have been looking around here for a couple days
    and have found lots of good info. I have a home made vertical
    55 gal barrel a friend made into a smoker for me. Its kind of ghetto but it works well. All the neighborhood kids won’t stop coming around for BBQ. Then they go home and ask why there dad’s $1000+ propane grill can not out cook my 55 gal drum. I have also started learning the art of using Dutch Ovens. They sure make good cobblers.

    This Saturday I will be smoking some cheese, and then some chicken. Then on Sunday some pork of some sort.

    Hey Mike, welcome to the forum. I've been interested in making a drum too. Just haven't found one locally. May have to end up buying a drum and giving it a try.

    No sir, I'm smarter than I look. [​IMG] I drive a 92 Dodge with a cummins. And I love that old girl. I have 250 thousand miles on it. I pull a 24 ft goose neck with 20,000# on it, and still get 13 MPG loaded .[​IMG] My son has a 2001. He has so much more HP than mine, its dis-heartining. [​IMG]
    We have two Kenworths out in the pasture, one has a 400 cummins, one has a V-8 detroit 318. (300 oil leaks, 18 HP). Give me an inline 6, anyday! You got a good PU though, I'm just razzin ya.
