    Excited to be here!!

    Hey guys, I am excited to be here!

    I have been smoking for about 6 years, I get a couple more smokes in each year. Finding time is the hardest thing especially with 3 young boys under age 5 (no twins) But they are are very helpful if you know what mean!

    ​​​​​​I got interested in smoking and cooking meat using an old Brinkmann Smok-in-grill that we won years ago and no one used. It has been laid to rest but it played it's part. I currently use a Smoke Vault which has served me well for a few years now. I also use a homemade wood box for cooking chicken and a vintage Weber grill that won't quit!! I am saving up to upgrade to a Backwoods Chubby charcoal someday, hopefully sooner than later.

    I am a farmer in Iowa specializing in poultry with corn and soybeans as well. I am a die-hard International Harvester guy and enjoy working in my timber with my Burr Oak trees. I have been married for over 5 years and have 3 boys. I also coach track and field at the high school level. This pretty much sums me up.

    Thanks

                        Welcome to The Pit. If your Weber uses charcoal, you could get a Slow N Sear and a Temperature controller and smoke overnight and still get a good night's sleep.
