View Full Version : New to List

Hello all

Just joined the list today after looking for info on the Bandera. Happened to see one on sale at Walmart last night so I'm going back to get it today (after looking at stuff on the web last night and today).

I was previously considering a horizontal cooker with an offset firebox but the deal on the Bandera is really good. I have to admit the temp ranges/differences listed in the "101" document are a little more than I figured but I'm sure I can figure it out.

Looking forward to everything I can find here to help!

Welcome, JT!

Fasten your seatbelt and hang on. We've got more opinions than Janet has wardrobe malufunctions! There is a lot of information and guidance on this forum. We've got recipes, modifications, hints, tips, bogus observations :D, etc. You name it and we've probably cooked it!

Don't be slow to ask questions - as Bill and I have both stated in the other thread we've got lots of different model cookers represented and we all also grill, deep fry, etc. So keep posting and most of all have fun with your Bandera.

Missouri IS the midwest chapter, Chicago is kind of like a distant outpost of the midwest chapter.

I'm just north of Columbia and work at MU.

And we have to stay on this side of the river - the stench from the peanut mod clouds up the other side!

Welcome jt! You did yourself a favor by registering. I've been a member for less than a month and keep printing pages of stuff to work into my Q. Look forward to hearing about your experiences, and picking up an idea or two for the future.
