I'm new to the forum, of course, and still a newbie in the BBQ arts. I grew up eating gas fired meats, but I desired more flavor... I started modding my Char Broil gasser, new heat shields, diffusers, racks, ceramic briquetts, and adding a smoker box. but I yearned for more!

I was given an oval kettle grill by a friend moving to the west coast, and started playing with it. I practiced indirect cooking and adding wood to the charcoal. I actually have created a wonderful smoked almond or five.

Encouraged by my flavorful creations, I mentioned my desire for a "real" smoker... I was given a brinkmann smoke n grill instead... great! modified it too, of course. learned to make some falling off the bone pork ribs. I continue to learn and am always looking for more info. I plan on buying the NB Bandera and subjecting it to the full on mods! thanks for the forum! I enjoyed the bandera 101 primer.

Hello!
Falling off the bone might be just a bit too done, but that's just me...
Welcome!

Welcome aboard! Hope you find an older Bandera. They were built with heavier metal. But newer ones are OK.
