View Full Version : Another California Newbie

12-16-2010, 12:30 AM
Hello All,
I would like to lead off by saying that I have never been on a forum so if I am doing something wrong please say so.
My name is Chad and I live near Sacramento, California. I borrowed a friend’s smoker to see if I liked to smoke and that was 8 months ago. The smoker I am currently using is a smoky mountain great outdoors propane smoker. I decided to buy my own (so I could return my friends), and unfortunately I was unable to find one that fit my budget and my want list. So I decided to build one… I am an experienced welder and fabricator, I do not do it for a living it is just a hobby. I am building it out of propane tanks in an offset sort of way. I am going against the traditional and I am making my smoker propane powered, hence my username. I would love to post pictures of my build here for comments/suggestions, although I do not know how yet. I have never built a smoker before and I know there is a plethora of knowledge here. I am looking forward to being a part of this community. Finally, I apologize for the long first post.
