    Hi, I've been smoking for about 5 years now. I am a KCBS CBJ for 4 years.

    I am a full-time student so I don't have much time to cook anymore, but I do every chance I can get. I used to have a little Brinkman offset but when we moved to our new place 4 years ago they didn't allow wood/charcoal, so I switched to a Smokey Mountain gasser. Except the year after that, they didn't allow those either, so the smoker sits at my in-laws house.

    That's all for now I guess.

    Glenn, I'm gonna suggest you stop looking at this forum. If you spend too much time here, you'll be wanting to move, or even worse, spend a LOT of time at your in-law's house to be near your smoker!

    I wish my in-laws lived a little closer. They are only 30 minutes away, which isn't that bad, but if you figure the things I want to cook take 12-14 hours, it's a pretty big time commitment to spend there when I have studying to do.

    I miss the days of having a smoker right outside the door. I could rub some meat, throw it on either overnight for brisket or butt, or put it on in the morning for ribs. Then while the ribs are cooking I just come back inside and read or study...

    Welcome to the smf glenn, sorry to hear about your smoking situation. Would you be allowed an electric smoker ?

    Anyways, glad you're here, lots of good people and great info.

    Welcome to SMF. Sounds like you already have quite a bit of experience.

    Sounds like "they" need to taste some of your finished product then maybe "they" will reconsider. [​IMG] I'm sure the neighbors would support you.
