Hey Everybody,

Just got back from my first BBQ competition at Memphis in May (MiM, darn you guys have a lot of acronyms!). We were celebrating my 30th birthday, and my gf and family all chipped in on the trip. Holy cow, we got the VIP Pit passes and had a BLAST! It was the best birthday I've have ever had, hands down.
Now I'm hooked and ready to give my grill a rest and invest what few pennies I have on a cheapo smoker. Looking forward to learning a ton, and eating even more!

Welcome to our crazy little club house!

And as far as a "cheapo smoker" --- you can't go wrong with a UDS :thumb:.

Welcome Dork! Greetings from Hickory, NC... good luck with your smoker purchase. If you ask around here, you will get suggestions that range anywhere from $39 to $3,900 on that purchase ;)

Thanks guys! Glad to be here, been surfing this thing constantly since I joined! After searching all these threads I've decided to build UDS! I'm waiting to get it sandblasted and then should be ready to be assembled!

Welcome!

We might have to share some BBQ at a Ducks game this season! We usually go 3 or 4 times a season since my GF parents have season tickets.
