    Hello SMF folks! I found this site through some members of another site I belong to. In the past, I've found some great info and pointers in these forums and I thought it was time to join up. My current setup is a Char-Griller Akorn Kamado that my wife got me for our anniversary. Prior to that I have smoked meats on vertical smokers, homemade setups, cheapo Wal Mart specials, Webers, you name it! BBQ has become more than a hobby for me and I am trying to turn my passion into a money making business, sites like this have taught me a lot over the years and I feel confident in my cooking abilities enough to try and make a living with it.WIth that said, I am looking at moving to an affordable commercial grade cooker to get me going and all the other stuff associated with starting up a BBQ shack, when you don't have anything to waste it is a real benefit to have a great resource at your disposal like these forums. I look forward to participating in threads with you all, learning from those who have been perfecting the art of BBQ and Smoking, and sharing my experiences with others!
