Just wanted to introduce myself and thank everyone for a great forum.
My desire to learn cooking started in my teenage years but my BBQ addiction only started 3 years ago.
I started with a vertical propane smoker and bought an older New Braunfels offset last year. I took it straight to the shop and tore into it. Modified it to a reverse flow with new rack, stack, wheels, etc. etc.
My newest adventure is a late 40's or early 50's Philco refrigerator that will be a pellet smoker. I finished the fridge 2 weeks ago and so far have 2 cooks on it. It cooks very nice but almost feels like cheating the BBQ system.
I also started my gravity fed smoker this week. This project seems to moving quickly and hope to be complete in a few weeks.
Hoping to have them both at Hog Happenin in Lincolnton!
After modifications and ready for a burn!
