Hi all,
Greetings from Maryland.
I've got tons and tons of questions so I hope you guys have answers. I have been smoking and BBQing for several years but just for myself and friends. However with the recent turn in the economy I find myself unemployed with a family to provide for. Unable to find gainful employment in my field I have decided to take my cooking and BBqing skills on the road. Catering, vending or competitions, etc... wherever people are hungry. I have gathered up tons of materials to build a trailer rig and am currently gathering the legal info I need to make this happen. I have enlisted the help of friends and famliy, from building the trailer to running the business. I also found somone who is willing to weld the trailer for free (ok not free it'll cost me a several pounds of BBQ) However with all the experts around me I find I'm the one who knows the most about the actual cooking and health codes. The cooking I'm good with (always willing to learn though), the healthcodes, well they are another story.

Anyway long story short, you'll be hearing a lot from me as I progress through this.

Oh yeah and I have to admit, the first time I smoked pork, I did it in an old washing machine. It wasn't pretty, but it worked and tasted great. (We also used this same machine to grill some steaks) I am however currently smoking on a Chargrill Smoker I got at Home Depot. It does the job but I need more space.
