    Default One more T-town Okie smoker

    Hello to everyone. Just found out about this place today from Tim. I've been visiting that "other place" a little, but after cruising around this site, I think I'm gonna feel at home here.

    Been smoking for about ten years. Started with a home made smoker that I actually found abandoned in a parking lot. Trial and error turned out some pretty good grub. Couple of years ago, I bought a chargriller with side fire box, and been using that mostly since. I'm a long time heart patient, and just had a quadruple bypass in Feburary, so red meats, sausages, and the like have never been on my diet. Turkey, chicken, and Salmon are my favorites, but a butt portion ham or pork tenderloin is on the menu sometimes too. I keep my smokers at my cabinet shop. Makes it easy to keep an eye on the smoking and make some money at the same time. Girlfriend likes it when I bring home a hot fresh smoked, chicken cause she don't hafta cook. Workers love it when they have a hot lunch. Once a month, the guy who owns the machine shop next door buys the meat and I'll smoke it up for a great lunch. He has 30 employees. Lots o fun to smoke for that many people.


    Look forward to being a part of this community.

    Curt.

    Here's a pic of what I started with if I can figure out how to post a pic.

    Thanks all. Posting that pic was easy once I made it small enough.LOL. I read the tutorial about photobucket, but being slightly computer inept, Couldn't make much sense of it. I would like to post bigger ones that you can actually see. I'll get one of the young guys in the shop to show me how. HAHA!

    Welcome to the Joint, Curt. Pretty neat to be able to smoke some grub and eat it at work.

    Cherry, pecan, hickory, alder, oak, walnut, poplar, and other stuff, but I just use them for kindling to start my sticks

    I don't know about the walnut and poplar, but I've always wanted to use some alder to smoke some fish. If you'll save up some decent alder scraps I'll buy them from you.
