Greetings from Austin, TX (or should I say howdy?)

2 new Qers here. I (Smokin Okole) moved here to Austin 9 years ago from New Jersey and quickly fell in love with the BBQ here. This past year, my mom and dad (The Pig) moved down here after retiring, and we decided at some point to do a little father-son bonding over a smoker at some point.
Well, last week he up and did it; dad went out and bought a Bandera.

So here we are! We're trying out some of the mods from Bandera 101 and hope to be up and cooking by spring break.

This summer has been declared the "Summer of Meat" in advance. Hopefully, we'll figure this whole Qing thing out.

Welcome to the home of the Bandera. We have branched out and include all smokers now, but this is still and will always be the best place to get good advice on that smoker. You will love it here.

Welcome Smokin Okole and Pig.

We don't seem to have a whole lot of guys from New Jersey in the group.
Where did you live in NJ and how do you like Texas?
