    Default A 'lurker' goes public.....

    Hello everyone:
    I have been lurking in the woods for a few months reading all the posts I can and have come out into the open. I have been bbq'n and smokin' for a lot of years (used to run a smokehouse for a meat market in my younger days up here in Canada) and I really have enjoyed all the informative posts in this great forum. I have learned more than I ever thought possible for an old guy. It has been like a college course.
    I have been doing my cooking on an old propane bbq and my smoking on a very small offset I bought years ago at a hardware store. You guessed it--everything is always underdone, overdone, burnt, smoky, or---great!!! never two cooks the same in a row. No matter what I do I can't count on repeating a great result. These small cheap offsets (made out of tin it seems) are not the answer. That is why I joined this forum---to get answers. And did I ever get them--in spades. You guys are great.
    I am in the process of building two smokers and I hope I can contribute something to this group. I am looking forward to communicating with you all.

    Welcome to the Joint Boss.

    Glad you decided to come out of the shadows.

    We have another Boss hog here too. I hope I don;t get the two of you confused!

    Thanks for the welcome. I noticed some time after I joined that another Boss Hog surfaced. He is two separate words (Boss Hog) and I am one single word (BossHog). He sounded like a much more knowledgeable and competent guy than me so I don't think you will ever have much trouble telling us apart. If you do, just ask who the Canuck is---that would be me.

    Howdy Boss, glad you came out of the bushes.
    Keep us up on your smoker build(s) and your smoking adventures. Share what you know.
    And post us some pics of your toys and the grub they turn out.
    And, if we can help, just let us know.

    Soon as I have pics of the builds I'll put them up here. How many posts do I have to do before I can put up the pics? My drums (I am doing two of them at a time) are almpst ready for the seasoning burn and will be smoking some bbq **** real soon. I am pretty sure that this style of smoking will be a lot different than smoldering sawdust in a smokehouse full of bacon, sausage, and hams klike we did at the old *****er shop in the old days. Everyone says that the food tastes better when done in a drum and I can see why. I just hope my design works like I hope.

    Is butchershop a bad word? Something censored it in the last post.
