:razz: I'm a country boy from the southeast Georgia low country, Jesup Georgia, which is near the coast...I retired a couple years ago and devote most of my time now to riding my motorcycle, fishing and cooking... I bought a pull behind wood cooker two year ago and have cooked butts and spare ribs several times for the Jesup Rotary club, the Jesup VFW and Jesup Elks club, ext...I have competed in two non-sanctioned cookoffs for the last two years and plan to cook in the Jesup Rotary Club Cook Off coming up October the 22nd and 23rd. Although I've been smoking meat all my life and at one time owned a barbecue restaurant. I still have a lot to learn about smoking meat... I enjoy cooking and especially enjoyed learning about cooking and smoking all kinds of meats and foods...

I belong to another forum "The Virtual Weber Bulletin Board" and have enjoyed learning and participating with that group... I am really looking forward to participating in this form and have enjoyed reading the information contained here so far... Thanks for allowing me to be a "brethren"...

Welcome, and its nice to have another southerner around. My folks live in Brunswick (St.Simons), and it would be nice to meet another brother sometime. Also, what kind of cooker did you buy? My wife and I were in Nahunta looking at smokers last month.

Next time you're through Jesup give me a call and take a look at my cooker... I bought it from a fellow in Waycross... He was looking for a larger cooker and decided to sell his old one... It is a 250 gallon propane tank mounted on mobile home I-beams, 24 inch firebox with two three inch dampers, two stacks, and two doors... I can cook 16 Boston boats on it at one time... Which is large enough for anything that I do...

I have also looked at the cookers in Nahunta... He really builds a great cooker...A little pricey I thought...we have several guys in Jesup that build cookers... In fact the Jesup Rotary club is having a barbecue cook off October22nd and 23rd...If you can make it that would be a good time to take a look at some very nice homemade cookers... We would love to have you Cook in the cookoff if you want... Entrance fee is $35. It's a nonsanctioned event in lots of fun... if you want more information e-mail me...

Thanks again for the warm welcome....

I'll be down near the end of October, but it will be a marathon to pick up the new smoker. However, maybe we could stop in Jessup on the way down or back to check out your rig and have a few beers. I'll let you know when I know more.

10-09-2005, 09:04 AM

That will be great... Looking forward to meeting you... :grin: ... Did you get your cooker from Nahunta...? They build a jam up smoking machine... definitely a Cadillac...
