Lurked around long enough - Glad to become a member!

  1. Hi All,

    Just a quick intro on myself.

    I am an Australian born and bred who loves all things cooking. I've been hooked on my pizza oven years ago until I spoke to a friend talking about his trip to America and his adventure with smoked meats. I'm not gonna lie, it sounded awesome!

    3 weeks later and I had built my first smoker out of a 50L beer keg (which we had the task of emptying first!). It must have been dumb luck but what I made sits on 225 with ease (hot smoke with charcoal and wood). I will put a pic in to show my baby.

    I have tackled the nomal ribs, pulled pork, chicken and sausages but still mustering the courage give brisket a shot.

    Have been lurking on these boards for a long time leaning heavily on others advice and taking inspiration from their creations.

    Basically I have joined as sadly I have outgrown my baby smoker and wanted to jump on the reverse flow band wagon as just like the rest I am swept up in the concept and reviews and will definitely need some help with my build (which hopefully is not too forward of me). 

    Thanks for taking the time and I look forward to chatting with everyone.

    Welcome to the best BBQ forum on the net.

    Great little smoker you built.

    If you build a bigger one , please don't get rid of it.

    I use my mini - wsm as a everyday cooker.
  9. Thanks for the compliments. Hit it right on the head tho as it is a little smoker (hence the hunger for a reverse flow). 

    But I would never part with it anyway as I've developed a "questionable"attachment to it.......

    It just brings so much pleasure to our lives [​IMG]
