What's up everybody, my name is Thomas and I landed here after doing research into the Bandera. I read many posts on the Yahoo Bandera group before coming over and am real close to getting me one of these as it is time to get a bigger cooker and don't want to break the bank with a Klose.

I got into Q'ing a few years back since my dad moved away and I needed to make some of that sweet juicy brisket of his. I own a webber kettle and a half size like webber smokey moutain...I say this becasue it is almost as old as I am (30) and don't know what brand it is but is basically a WSM but half the size. My dad owns a modified balck diamond model and lives by it. I mainly smoke brisket, chicken quaters, and pork ribs but have done a couple of pork shoulders. My preferred wood of choice is and always will be Pecan. I may throw in a piece of oak or mesquite but I love the flavor of Pecan. I love grilling steaks and the Southern Flounder I bring home from my other hobby of wade fishing Galveston bay.

I have really enjoyed reading all the modifications for the Bandera and feel confident that if I go out and pay $200 at Academy for it I will be able to turn out some quality Q after a shortened learning curve and a few minor modifications...thanks to you all.

Well I am glad I found this place and hope to contribute and continue learning from all you Quers.

Thomas

You sure can learn a lot from these guys. Used to live in Rosenberg myself, thats what got me hooked on brisket.

Welcome Thomas

This group started as an offshoot of the Yahoo Bandera group many moons ago.

We just don't sing as well as they do.
