Received a reprimand for not introducing myself. Here you go …

Name: Doug Casten
Nickname: Balls Casten (refers to golf balls in my pocket for mulligans)
Home: Johnston (Des Moines) Iowa
Age: 40+
Smokin: 10 years
Smoker: Kingfisher Backyard Bonanza
Farkles: Wireless Stoker

Background: Met up with a BBQ team (Double Shot) in KC who let me hang around for the Lenexa contest every year. They took me in and I have been hooked on smoking ever since. We cook pretty good stuff that has us finishing in the middle of the pack at the competitions we attend. But we have never gotten over the hump and won anything but a couple ribbons. I have been bopping around the message boards looking for ways to improve and found the Brethren. And although I am here looking for help in competitions I have already made MOINK balls and planning on bacon weave soon.


Other interest:
#1 The most understanding wife in the world!
Boating - 266 Crownline.
Motorcycles – BMW 1200 LT

Favorite quote: “If you reach down to tie your shoes and see nothing but peanuts and confetti. You know the parade has passed you by."

What other worthless information can I tell you about .....

What not loud enough for you? I put on a few more miles than down to bike night and back. :biggrin: 59,000+ the last two years .. in Iowa's weather remember. I sneek over and grab dads Harley once in a while too. But it makes it tuff to tallk on the phone when I'm on that bike. I just like to ride!
