Just getting around to an introduction

I have been smoking for about 8 years now ever since my wife bought me an UDS and now it is a true addiction. I upgraded to a lightly used CharGriller with an offset firebox a little while ago. I have a little work to do to it but nothing a couple cans of high temp paint cannot fix. I needed more room to do multiple full racks of ribs. I am also an avid home brewer and I am going to try to smoke my own grains for a Rausch style beer. I love four wheeling with my son in my Jeep. and just enjoying life in general. 

Its great to have found a great community of people that I'm sure can answer all my questions I may have.
