    This is Bob, AKA Roscoe, coming to you from northern NJ.  This site looked interesting and informative which prompted me to register.

    I’m a retired private investigator; giving up my agency after almost three decades.  I’m also an avid hunter.  I’ve killed many dear in upstate NY, pheasants, grouse in addition to Elk and Muley out in Wyoming. 

    The last two years we’ve been going down to Tennessee for boar.  Last year I got a Russian sow that came in a little over 300 lbs and this year I got a feral sow at around 350lbs.

    Didn’t do much smoking last year with the exception of the ribs but this year I plan to smoke most of the hog.  I got rid of my entry level Brinkman and picked up a Weber SM 18” which can handle a whole hind leg.

    Over the years I’ve smoked everything from lake trout to pheasants and regular pork cuts. I’ll be looking for some sage advice from members here on best ways to smoke my feral piggy.

    In addition to hunting, I love golf, hiking and driving my replica of a 66 Shelby Cobra that I built from scratch 15 years ago.
