    Hello All. I became a smokin fan after I attended a BBQ where a lamb shoulder was served. I was hooked. The very next day I went to Wal-Mart and bought a propane powered GOSM. I've been reading the forum for about 2 weeks now and have gotten some excellent ideas from all of you. Thanks to everyone who contributes, this forum is excellent, and full of classy people.

    I was wondering about that.

    Debi, acually i think there are alot of people who smoke meat in IOWA, and have the BBQLOSSEL, There are many pork and beef producer organizations that have BIG trailer units and cook alot of what they support for fund raisers, chuch functions and so on. and we are getting lots of KCBS and other nonsanctioned cookoffs, and lots of people are at these events cuz they are run with various celebrations and town functions, we are a fairly rural state so it gives people sumthing to do

    And we just got the internet in our lovely state, even if ISU think they invented it along with the computer.
