    Hello fellow BBQers,

    I have been smoking meat semi-seriously for about 3 years now. Broke down and bought a Brinkman Smokin-pro with the offset firebox. Love it, now want something bigger. Still trying to perfect a beef brisket. Recently cooked my first whole pig for a birthday party. Rented the charcoal pig cooker from the Marine Corps base for $15 for the weekend. Now thinking about entering a competition. Have aspirations of opening a BBQ restaurant after retiring from the Marine Corps in 6 years. Until then, I'll just keep having fun smoking meat for the neighborhood.

    Welcome from Wisconsin and thanks for your service!

    Gotta say if I could drop 15 dollars for a weekend I'd be renting a smoker of that size and just having people deliver meat to put on it for the sheer fact I could LOL

    I wish I would of thought about renting a pig smoker from the MWR on the army base I guess I was too young and too worried about well never mind.
    Welcome to the forum and congrats on I am assuming 14 years in service. I respect that I always kind of wish I would of stayed in longer than I did but oh well.


    This smoking thing is addicting isn't it even more when you can share and get information from a community like this.
    Looking forward to hopefully you posting your smokes in the future. Don't forget to take pictures!
