    Pleased to meet you! My name is Tim and I reside in northern Indiana. I'm a husband of 28 years, a father to a daughter who is a sophomore in college, a father to a son who is a senior in high school that keeps me busy with his motocross racing.
    I am a welder by trade and decided I wanted to build a smoker a few years ago so I started collecting parts and pieces, I built this smoker with the intent of using charcoal and chunks of wood and for the most part it worked ok but with the fire tube so small I was constantly tending the fire . I eventually lost interest and shoved it in the barn until last week when I seen my old turkey fryer sitting there collecting dust and I thought the propane burner would be a perfect fix for my smoker.
    After the propane mod and fabricating a wood chip cup I decided I had never done pork butts so why not try it ? I smoked a 6 and 8 pounder today and thanks to this communities passion for what they do and a willingness to share their experiences I was able to make some pretty darned good pulled pork.

    To the forum and contributors a huge Thanks!
