    Well I guess I should intro myself and as it says this is the place to do it. [​IMG]

    I live in Western South Dakota. I've probably been smoking meat for about 5-6 years. Although mostly as a lone wolf. Most of the stuff I learned was from reading a couple books, watching the BBQ shows on Food Network and of course trial and error. My brother and I both Q and talk about different ideas we have for recipes. He actually did a little catering on the side and the folks sure liked it, but things changed and he couldnt keep up with it.

    I use a Brinkmann Pitmaster Deluxe. I usually use natural charcoal and then use hickory or applewood (from an old tree out back!!). I like smoking with the wood but the babysitting takes a lot of time and then I dont get to do it so much. I recently ordered an Afterburner Propane conversion (from recommendations I read here!!) hopefully with the propane I can BBQ more.

    Anyways, glad I found this place there is a lot of ideas and other stuff to see.

    We're happy to have you at SMF, Jake! You're ahead of the game with having your own wood to burn, rather than having to buy the stuff.

    Look forward to your future posts, and q-vue!
