I was born in Louisiana and grew up in Dallas (Lewisville) TX so I have soft spot in my heart for Cajun food and BBQ. I moved to Mooresville NC 3 years ago and luckily I can cook or I would be severly deprived of my 2 favorite food groups. There is no cajun food here and I have not really adapted to Carolina BBQ. I have been smoking for several years on a small Brinkmann model but I have more to learn than share. I also have a large La Caja China roasting box that I would be curious if anyone else out there owns. It's really made for pigs but I end up using it mostly for chickens. I am also planning to build a reverse flow smoker out of a 250 gallon tank. I will be asking for advise when that project starts. Glad to be here!
