Lo all,

I've been readin this fourm for like a year now and never posted. Why? dunno ya'll are too good not to get in the middle of :> Name's Joe, got a NB Silver and been smoking on it for a year (ever since reading this forum) and the reason I've decided to post was that I just found out how much of a farking idiot I've been. I've been smoking stuff on this beast for a while and been trying lots of things, pulled off some ok Q but nothing to write home about (family thinks I'm crazy, they say its the best they've ever had, but bad Q is still better then most) I had a major problem.. heat, I had to babysit this thing from sun up to sun down, never 5 minuets away from it because I the thing would drop temp at a drop at a hat, or the flame would die. Didn't know what the heck was going on.. Today I've got a butt and a picnic going and the temp would drop like a stone and the flame would die like every 5 minuets... I'm reading trying to figure out whats going on and then I look in the firebox.. I had my fire grates like 4 inches above the damper hole... not enough air. flipped those buggers around and now I keep a constant 230 for about a hour... man this is like heaven.

anyway just wanted to say HI

Joe

hey joe.. I started on a hondo.. bigger version of the Silver. Check out the files section for the horizontal mods, they really help. On the silver, the most important is the firegrate and the chimney extension. Did u do those?

That's a understatement. Welcome to the Group, I use to drink beer with Tommy Kendall but not within the last year so I'm not cool anymore.

Welcome aboard Joe. Glad you broke finally the ice. Stick around. I don't drink beer so I don't know what these BRD and Smaich dudes are talking about. 8)

Welcome, Joe. From now on, you will never be able to go out and enjoy eating Q. Every restaurant you go to will make some type of mistake, that you will be sure you could improve. You will wake up in the middle of the night and think about an answer to the last post you read. You will never want to leave home, because that is a waste of good smoking / Queing time. The dark side is crowded. I have to sign off and get back to tending my fire.
