Split between Michigan and Texas
So this July I decided that I’m retiring at the end of the year. I decided that with the extra time I wanted ( besides smoking) was to get back into woodworking. End of July first of August I got a small garage brought in.

I added a lean to to the side of the garage to house the smoker.
Inside I’m just now getting set up.

I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to the end of the year as I am to the end of 2023. 😁😁😁
This spring I hope to be posting more BBQ pics.
I'm jealous, I had to sell off all my large woodworking tools.
We moved from a 3-car to 2-car garage house and no room for the toys.
I had a fantastic 800 sq ft wood shop that I had to get rid of when we moved cross country (twice). I am jealous.
