Hello from Missouri

  1. Hi All,

    Good to be here. I'm from Harrisonville, Missouri (about 30 miles South of KC). I've been smoking away on my LBGE and my CS-570 pellet pooper for a few years now. I have a few friends on the competition circuit and have to talk myself out of going that route from time to time. I just don't have the time or money to do it right now.

    I'm a computer geek (Wireless Communications Analyst) by day and a, well, a lot of things at night and on the weekends. I'm on the Board of Aldermen (City Council), very active in the Masons, a father of 3 (+1), and a guitar playing lake rat during the summer.

    Seems like a great forum you have here and I'm excited to join in.

    First off welcome to SMF there Bret. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.
