Hi folks,

Long time viewer, first time poster :becky:
You guys have been putting up some great stuff for years, I really appreciate it!!!

My name's Jalon, I'm a transplant down here in Hanahan, SC, which is part of Charleston (grew up out west). Bounced around in the Navy for 10 years, went around the world and tried meats of different flavor (umm...that means animals you normally wouldn't think of to eat :icon_blush: ), met interesting people, had a few brews here and there.... got out in '03, been here 6 years now, and love it. My old man smokes meats back home, oddly enough never got into doing myself until recently (sure tasted great tho).

I'm working on assembling the pieces parts for my UDS now, got a couple of barrels that I've yet to pop the top on (sunflower oil in them) so I'm hoping I don't have too much work to do inside, I think it's light tan on the inside though.

Looking forward to all the pics, advice, and brain power you've posted (jeez, 527 pages is unreal) and hope I can contribute somethin' useful...take care!!

Jalon

p.s. - if you're nearby, drop me a line...nothing better to learn by watching and doing, I always say

I am in Summerville. Been smokin and grillin for some time but, as I told a friend this weekend, I seem to be slipping deeper into the rabbit hole.

I expect to be competing next spring. Planning to start at Smoke at the Lodge in Summerville.
