Hello everyone, I'm Tom a 26 year old living in Central Pennsylvania. I grew up in California and enjoyed great barbecue and great barbacoa. Joined the Army when I was 18 and was stationed in Texas and once again enjoyed great barbecue. Since then I've married and fathered a child and now serve in the PA Army National Guard. My wedding nearly one year ago I did my first barbecue on my CharGriller Duo nice for a first grill no fire box probably wont put one on. Last weekend was a family reunion barbecue. At both events I did 2 briskets central texas style. Every one enjoyed it very much. I'm currently building my own reverse flow smoker from a 55 gallon parts drum I got from work. The fire box is being made out of any thick steal I can find. slow progress considering I can only work on it during my breaks at work. Thank you for your time.
