    I'm Dan, I live in Concord.
    If any of you live close by, let's meet up and drink some beers and smoke something good to eat.
    Basically just hang out and laugh about stupid things we have screwed up on the smoker.
    Are any of you NorCal guys duck or goose hunters or ocean fishermen?
    If your a bird Hunter .come on over and blow some duck and goose calls before the season starts up.
    I'm a waterfowl calling fanatic.
    Just wanted to introduce myself and maybe get to know a few people that live close by.
    Get in touch if anything I posted above sounds interesting to you.

    Take care.

    Oh I've been around here for years, I just today saw the NorCal sub forum page....lol!!!

    This forum is the best there is for many reasons, mainly because everyone here is pretty down to earth and there isn't much drama or B.S. just helpful people who are willing to share secrets and help others out.
    Thanks for the welcome though.

    Have a good one.

    Yeah, so far so good for use.
    We are about 2 hours south of the two biggest fires. We had some local fires but nothing compared to the Car fire and the fire in Yosemite.
    But it's been smoky as hell down here from those fires. Day time looks like the early morning or late evening with an orange hue.
    And the sunsets have been amazing. I feel so sorry for the people that have lost homes and life's because of these wicked fires.
    I swear it seems like the whole state is burning. I pray that these fires take out a handful of CA politicians, we could use a fresh start......Truth!!!!!

    Hey Jimbo, no I don't use Facebook.
    I actually made and account and after about a week of seeing what meals people that I haven't thought of in 30 years were eating kinda turned me off to it. And it wasn't even BBQ. LOL.
    If your ever down this way give me a heads up and maybe we can plan a cook together at my house.
    Retired turd herder here.
