    Okay, so even know Ive been lurking for awhile, I know Im going to catch crap if I dont post here first. (Ive actually already posted... but whatever..) My name is Eirik and I love to cook. Ive been smoking and/or around smoking most of my life. My early memories are of my mom smoking Bluefish and Flounder in a plywood box built by my dad out in the garden in Virginia.and Georgia. Mighty fine tasting stuff!! Of course she was like the Bubba Gump of fish cookers in order to keep us kids eating it like FIVE times a week!! She Baked it, broiled it, sauted it, smoked it, fried it, grilled it, boiled it( I know, YUCK!!) stewed it you name it, she tried it. Anyway, I love this site and Im gllad to be here. I own a ECB, a fifty dollar New Braunsfeld Black Diamond, and most recently bought a BRAND NEW ( Still in box) $75.00 dollar, 24" Smoke Vault. I seasoned it yesterday and plan on smoking a 9 pound butt over night tonight.

    I love to fish, camp, hike, travel, collect pioneer era dutch ovens ( as well as old Lodge ones), and also old Griswold as well. I Cook in all of them every time I get a chance and of course Smoke!!

    HI to everyone,

    Hello Eric, and welcome to the best smoking site on Mother Earth, SMF that is. There are many folks here who are into using DO's, so you're in great company. It's all good my friend.

    Thank you all for your kindness. I bought the smoker form a guy who was moving and did not want to pack it up. in fact, thats how I got the Black Diamond for 50 bucks now htat I think about it. He told me his wife gave it to him as a gift and he had no urge at all to use it( I have some golf clubs like that....LOL). His loss was my gain!! I just love the smoker, its perfect for me. Im about 6 hours into its virgin smoke right now with a pork butt. YooHoo!!
