This is Kingmac from Live Oak, just outside San Antonio. I am a new member of the SMF forum, and now I am a part of a forum devoted to all things Texan. I am pleased to be here and learn more about smoking, grilling, and just having a great time and good eats. I'm not a native Texan (unfortunately) but I got here as fast as I could. But my wife is a native Texan born in Kingsville.I have been in and out of Texas since 1963 owing to my service in the US Army. I have been in Texas since 1974 and retired from the Army in 1983.
