Greetings from a small island in Alaska, 

I have been sneaking around the forums for a while now, love the insight and camaraderie that I tend to see, and...with a bold leap at a new project I decide I was overdue to join.  I have owned a couple smokers, my current being a 30" MES that gets its use.  I have built one outdoor smokehouse and had to leave to leave it behind when I transferred and that pretty much broke my heart.

To have that not happen to me again, im going a different route.  I jumped in feet first and got myself a 500 gal tank, a trailer and a large propane tank to turn into a fire box and I am going to make myself a RF Trailered Smoker.  I have been grabbing lots of ideas from you fine folks and am sure I will have plenty of questions along the way.  

Thanks to everyone on this site for being here, and I look forward to many a chance to interact.

Thanks to everyone for the welcome.  I have previously done the E-course and have been using Jeffs Rub and Sauce and were impressed.  It has really given me a great starting point for trying to create my own blends and flavors.  I will be starting a thread for the build once I get that up and going, hopefully soon since i just pulled the trailer and future firebox into the hanger to work on.  Once again, really great to be here.
