    Just a friendly hello and introduction.

    My name's Mike and I'm a 30something merchant marine who works in the USA and lives in Thailand. About a year ago I got real interested in barbequing so I started my research online, just checking around.

    I built a little 10 gallon homebuilt smoker but only used it twice, partly because it was too much work to make just one or two racks of ribs. I also burned myself a little as a result of poor design.

    Now I have a muuuuch larger brick propane smoker. I'll put the details in the propane cooker thread later. Anyways I now have 6 cooks under my belt and it's getting a little better every time. Hopefully I'll get good enough to make smoked ale someday.[​IMG]

    Wow, I'm overwhelmed. This has to be the friendliest forum I've ever seen. Meateater, Big Ol Boy, Denver Dave, Etcher1, J-I Rodriguez, Beer B Que, Treegje, Chef Jeff Texas, Remarkosmoc, Smokeitifyagotit, Richoso1, Bassman, Labongio, Acemakr, Willianzangzinger, and Mr. Mac thanks for the welcome!

    JiRodriguez, the Thais don't do much slow cooking, and their BBQ chicken is very tame, just a little fresh garlic stuffed inside( a little dry, too, don't think they brine much. The Thai style for most things is real low impact, easygoing. So you can imagine their reaction when I built a giant propane smoker![​IMG]

    Giving credit where credit is due, I believe central Thailand is where the chicken was originally domesticated.

    I'll do a thread maybe tonight or in the next few days. I'm a real rookie when it comes to BBQ, but I've built a pretty interesting smoker.
