    I am from Smokey Point, WA.

    My smoker is a plywood home built jobber that is going to take some DEFINITE tweaking to work to my likings. Its a vertical smoker with six 16x20 racks, water pan and propane fired.

    So far I have smoked salmon, pepperoni, tri-tip, chicken and squishy jerky (ground from a blaster gun) I am in search of a nice single burner for the bottom that gets a little hotter than what I have now... but not turkey freyer hot.

    I'm a definite new guy to smoking... but my family has smoked EVERYTHING for years. So I have knowledge... but little 'hands on' experience. I have read a ton on here and am really going to enjoy sharing my adventures.

    Take Care

    Why, Hello there Mark Smith. Gee, you seem familiar. Bet you even know a guy in Arlington. Darn, I was hoping to keep you in the dark so we'd look more knowledgeable, but I think somebody had to go and spill the beans.
    Well, welcome to one heck of a great site. You know, I haven't been over to the build your own smoker forum but I'll just bet they've got some great hints you might want to incorporate into your baby.

    You know of course that there's several other NWBombers on this site now. We gotta have a smoking party at Hosscienda!!!! Bomb parties aren't going to be the same anymore.
