    well, I'm sure there must be a forum like that here somewhere, but not that I have found so far.. Sounds like you been smokin' a long time. What sort of smokers are you running?

    I'm from Cincy originally and bunch of my family went to OSU so I have become a bit of a fan. Sort of hard to do that living up here in Massachusetts. 

    My sister (OSU) married a very nice guy from Columbus who went to college at Michigan. I'm not really sure how the co-exist ( LOL )

    I started out using home depot specials to get started on... then I moved down to florida for almost five years and upgraded to a seven foot offset that I found on craigslist and rebuilt it. when I moved back to mi last year it was to big to bring with us so it was inherited by a friend of mine that spent a lot of time cooking me. im in the process of building a Jacks old south inspired water cooker now, with my own touches on it of course.

    Im cooking on a charbroil offset form home depot now which is the reason im building my own...im tired of using low end smokers and im in Michigan to stay so I dont have to worry about moving it any farther than friends or family functions and bbq comps
