Hi everyone,what a great forum.My name is Dan and I became interested in outdoor cooking when I was a kid.My dad made his first smoker by gutting out an old refrigerator and connecting a stove pipe to the bottom that ran down hill 10 feet to a pit with a 55 gallon barrel cut in half.we would burn apple and cherry in the pit and cover it with a old car hood.on the top of the fridge was a pipe with a damper and a thermometer drilled in thru the door.Every year we would butcher 2 pigs and smoke them.
In the early 90's my Father inlaw taught me how to smoke turkeys and ribs on a Brinkman bullet type smoker,and in the late 90's I purchased a Brinkman Cimmaron grill.
I'm very impressed with all the pron pictures,there is a huge number of talented people here.
Over at the Pizza throwdown my good friend and bowling partner FWECK is leading in the vote,his wife couldn't stop talking about how good that pizza was.Last week FWECK and I attended a all day class by Ed Emig at KickassBBQ,very good class had a great time.
Thank You for accepting me to this group, Dan Swanson
