    Got turned on to this site/forum by my buddy "flyin'illini" Glen. Been trying for the past couple of years, but haven't had much opportunity to smoke much of anything. I live vicariously through BBQ episodes on the Food Network, Travel Network, and anywhere else I can find it.

    Equipment: an unnamed charcoal bullet smoker I picked up at a yard sale; a Rival KC Smoker electric smoker I got for Christmas two years ago; a homemade ceramic pot contraption that I "fire" using either the element from a countertop grill (hot) or a hotplate (hot, hotter, hottest).

    Goals: Memphis in May (at least to sample); build my own brick pit or a hog-sized travel rig (gotta learn some masonry and welding first... then I gotta find the giant propane tank to convert... then I gotta recover from the "therapeutic beating" I will likely receive from mi esposa, but I digress).

    Currently gearing up for Memorial Day, which I hope includes a brisket, a Boston butt, and maybe a chicken or two.

    Welcome. Sounds like you have good aspirations. I too would like to make it to Memphis in May but it is a good haul from SW Virginia, so I may have to try some closer. No, what you mean about the wife. However I just tell mine that she has her hobbies like talking on the phone, buying clothes and scrapbooks. Cooking (especially grillin and smoking) is about the only the I have that resembles a hobby. Good luck on what ever you decided to build.
