Hey guys, and girls, I'm new here and getting into my first build. I'm an active duty Marine stationed in NC...and I love Q. I'm currently smoking on a chargriller SFB with coal and hickory/apple. I'm in the process of building a new smoker, which is what drew me here. I smoke butts, ribs, and brisket. I grill or smoke 5/7 nights a week at least, I love it, my favorite part of the day. Aside from cooking outdoors, I fish and hunt as much as I can. I'm a proud father of a 1 month old, my first. I'm from SC, but I prefer, and cook...NC Q. My name is Dave, and I'm glad to be here.

 Welcome Dave, I spent some time in LeJeune myself in 3/6 and 3/8. I wasn't into cooking like I am now (unless you count MREs). In my opinion, you are in BBQ heaven. I love NC BBQ. I grew up in Southport, NC. My grandfather had a seafood restaurant there. I remember a BBQ restaurant there called the Pines. I have been trying, unsuccessfully, for years to duplicate their BBQ. The closest I have ever found even, was  Pig Sandwich from the Hard Rock Cafe in Myrtle Beach. If you can make it up to Wilson, there is some Fine Q up that way too. Thanks for your service, Semper Fi!
