Southern man in Cali

I was born and raised in northeast GA. Once I came into the air force in 2002, they moved me to northern California, where I have been since then. I will be moving back to the south by the end of 2014.

I have been smoking food for almost a year. I am finishing up my 3rd smoker build. I built a 120 gallon reverse flow on a trailer, a 55 gallon UDS and now a 60 gallon reverse flow on a trailer. I sold the big one and will give the 55 to my brother in law after the 60 is done.

I am anxious to learn and get to know others with common interests. Look forward to my time spent here!

Welcome Neighbor!  Thank you for your service.  Must be at Travis AFB.  Lots of veterans here and lots, friendly people.  Congrats on the builds.  Sounds like folks can learn something from you!

BTW, I once live in a suburb of Chattanooga a few decades ago so somewhat familiar with northeast GA.  Great fishing.  Loved the crappie action.
