My name is Gene I am married with 4 children. I like hunting & fishing & spending time with my family. I have never owned a smoker. A guy I work with does it all the time so I decided to build one!! I joined hoping to gain some knowledge of the art of smoking from the people on here!!!!! Also to get some help with my project!!! I'm looking to convert a 100gal drum into a smoker. We'll see how that goes if it goes well I have a 250gal fuel drum I might work on this winter!!!
