    Hello from Rhode Island and glad to be part of the PIT crew

    Hi everyone, I am an avid smoker and have been doing it for 15 years. I also have just started cold smoking this year as well. I have an Oklahoma Joe, New Braunfels and a Weber 18" Bullet, with each one having a purpose. I feel you can never stop learning everything here is to Smoking and BBQ, so that's why I chose to become a member on this sight. I am toying around with opening a weekend BBQ spot in the late spring of 2019 down on the water and I feel I could gain a lot from people on this site al ready involved in some kind of BBQ business. Looking forward to learning from all of you.

            Welcome from Winnipeg. Good luck if you open the restaurant. Aaron Franklins book is an interesting read about how he got started if you have not already read it.
