  1. I am the Double Nickel, have been making sausages since the early 1980s and smoking meats since about the year 2000.  I once did a pig in my teenage years for a family get together.

    48 or is it 49 I keep forgetting,  been cooking meat on fire of some sort since the 80s but I didn't take it serious till about 8-9 years ago. I have though been cold smoking with my pops since I could walk into the smokehouse without falling down.
  3. I am 30 and I have been grilling regularly for about 10 years.  Just started smoking last week!

    38 been grilling for 19 and smoking for about 13. Nothing beats sitting around the grill or smoker having some cold ones talking crap with your buddies making some delicious grub!

    Perfectly stated! My only regret is that I only started 3 months ago! :(

    Been grilling for a while now. At least from USAF days do about 12 years. Stated smoking about 5 years ago when I got my smoking pro, now I'm on a Oklahoma Joe and I'm going to try my hand at sausage and smoked cheese soon.

    I'm 32.

    Been grilling for a while, when I was a kid/teenager, both my parents worked and left me to fend for myself at times. I didn't want any more cleaning in the kitchen to go with the chores I already had, so I'd do a hamburger or some hot dogs or whatever on the grill when I got home from school.

    I'm about three years into smoking though, learning something new with every bag of charcoal I burn.

    I have a Smokin-It #2 and LOVE it.  I also use a Weber Kettle when the mood strikes me and I have a Charbroil Infrared gas grill.

    Some would say I am an old fart?


    I am not going to discuss my fellow smokers' youth and inexperience.  [​IMG]

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Sorry as this is an old thread. I'm 45 and got hooked on this 7 yrs ago. Besides the meat my favorite aspect is the relaxation it brings!

    I'm 34 and been smoking for 3 months- TMLE pellet died (auger motor dislodged from the drive shaft) so I bought Horizontal TMLE. And almost done modifying it. Been cooking/ grilling @ 10 yrs.

    Jim- I guess once you learn it's relaxing. Right now- it's a love hate thing for me. I'm about to relearn everything b/c I had to get a new smoker.

    TMLE horizontal w/ off set charcoal or stuck burner here now. Had a vertical TrailMaster pellet and it failed mechanically after 2 months- made good turkey legs- brisket/ butt etc but didn't last long.
