Hello everyone, My name is Derek, I am a dive instructor, I own a dive shop in Panama City, FL and I am new to the forum here and pretty new using my smoker. It's just a offset backyard smoker but it does the job in my learning process and I have turned out some decent food in the 4 months since I first started. I have acquired some great advice from this forum this far.

Welcome from Canada, Derek.



I have only been smoking for a year myself and I have found this forum very useful as well. I suggest you post some of your smokes with pictures. You will get lots of suggestions and great feedback.

I look forward to your posts.

Hello, Y'all. My name is Terry. I'm from central Illinois. I'm 34 years old and have been grilling and smoking pretty hardcore since 2008. 

I do tree trimming for the power company, removing limbs, branches and entire trees from the power lines. This gives me a near infinite supply of BBQ wood. (If anyone lives near me or is passing through the area and wants some wood, hit me up.)

I'm also a missionary to Kenya, East Africa and married to a Kenyan lady. We have plans to build and orphanage there in the coming years. At that point, I will introduce a whole group of kids the foods I cook. 

Other than that, I'm a bass player and singer in a Progressive/Melodic Metal band and grill quite frequently when we practice.

Thank you, sir! I see that you are from Texas. Have you ever grilled any alligator down there? I have had it a few times, but never tried it, myself.
