New guy from Montana here.

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by swinging meat, Oct 2, 2008.

  1. Hi all I just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. I live in north central Montana, my wifes hometown. Im 31 years old and enjoy hunting and fishing. We have a small ranch and run some cows only about 70 head at the moment, but we are in the process of picking up some more ground so hopefully we get it. I have been a pretty good hand around a grill for quite some time now, but I am pretty new to smoking meat. I have lived in North Carolina, Tennessee, Kansas, and Texas each of which have their own distinct brand of BBQ and I love each of them. Some friends entered me in a rib cook off about a month ago and that started the bug. I currently in the process of buldiing my first smoker using a 55 gal. drum and a 16 gal. drum cut off and ofset for the smoke box. I look foward to reading helpful info form all.
