Just wanted to say a quick hello to everyone on the board. My name is james and i live outside of Seattle in the town of Snoqualmie. I found this site through the message board on Yahoo.
I received a nice message from Bill from Chicago asking me over to this area to introduce myself. So here i go...

After 6 months of searching i bought my Bandera. I say searching because up here the only thing's people smoke is fish, cigs, and pot. I had to have a True Value order me a Bandera straight from the factory. I fell in love with the Bandera when i was in Texas about 2 years ago meeting my wife's parents. Her family lives all around the great state of texas, and it seems on every corner youcan buy a smoker.
I fell in love with true Bar-B-Que in Houston and then in Austin and San Antonio. So i thought i would get me an offset-smoker up here. You can buy the cheap ones, but no NB's or better. I did find a busted one at wal mart but it wasn't worth it.
So i await its arrival and i still use my Weber kettle, my baby Weber kettel, an old smoker and a small gas grill.
I am a born and bred Washintonian, and married a true Texas Aggie by luck and by chance.
Best wishes to all on the board and if anyone is having a Northwest bandera party, count me in.

Welcome again James.

Don't be shy. Don't let a high post count make you timid about posting. Some of us (Brian and Greg) are just yappy.

Is that a Molson Golden I keep seeing in your hands?

David H is a long time brother from Portland, and Heath is in Briar WA.

You'll fit right in. Pull up a chair.

Small world, eh?

Double small world. My best friend used to live in Edmond. On a visit there we decided to drive to Snoqualmie, but driving up one of the hills on the way, the car died. We coast back down 30 feet and it started right up. But taking off back up the hill it died again at the same spot. Rolled back down and started up. God don't bless a car with the fuel mixture tuned to the Texas flatlands. We finally turned around and went home.

Welcome Brother James, Glad to have you aboard. By the time that new cooker arrives you should be all squared away on what mods will help you skip a lot of farkin around and get on to the important stuff.
Cookin' good eats and givin' The Grand Poobah a little grief every once in a while. Never hesitate to ask or add you $.02 worth.
