Hi Everyone, My name is Mike. I'm 35 years old and I stumbled upon this site a week or so ago and have been just diving in to all the info on here! This is great stuff! I have been experementing with smoking different meats and such on my little Brinkman Smoke n Grill that I rescued from my dad's garage a couple of years ago. So far I have done, ok, but I want to take a little bigger step now and just went out and got some hardware to start building me a Drum Smoker (UDS i think you all call it). I live in the north central Ohio area and I also enjoy fishing, a little hunting when I can find time, and playing music. I play the Banjo and a little bit of Bass too.
