Brethren,

trp1fox from nearby Rocklin, CA asked if I'd come clean and reveal who sfbbqguy really was.

From a bbq standpoint I got hooked when I was involved with a very large unaffilated Texas A&M Bonfire event in Tomball, TX where we smoked over 50 brisket. Bought a Weber Performer and was off and running about 6 years ago.

Now living in SF I've been experimenting with the Performer with everything I can think of. Probly my most exotic creation was Salmon Jerky when I hooked up fans and external cold smoke devices to do the job. Love smoking salmon as some years it's plentiful in this area.
Have gotten into Cold Smoking things like cheeses, olives and almonds which are also very easy to obtain in this region.

Now it's time to graduate to the UDS and really get serious! I went fishing with a guy in June who brought one along on the trip and I got hooked. :wink:

Love to fish and hunt and am a golf professional by trade so have no real skills as it pertains to building UDS but will make due.

Have wife and two young boys that love anything off the Weber. Wife knows nothing about UDS yet. "Why do we have that big barrel?"

Never used one of these forum things before but it has been very informative so far and am looking forward to all the new ideas.

Thanks to all for the "Welcome!"
No, not an Aggie, just worked with a whole bunch of 'em down in Tomball, TX at High Meadow Ranch for a few years.
It's a lot cooler in SF...75 today and that's a hot one for us. Great climate for holding temps on the smoker year round.
...gotta go work on the UDS!
Will post pics.

Welcome to the forum.
