New to site.....

  1. All I wanted to do was smoke some Salmon, so I bought an ECB at a garage sale, next thing I know I jumped off the cliff.  I have one working ECB, one for parts and another in the waiting to be modified when the Ugly Red Ironman ECB finally dies. I found another forum by accident and took a liking to it.  There I found great instruction how to build a UDS and well, I built one. I named it AquaLung.  It was an aqua blue drum so I went with it. I love my weber and have made some really good grub on it.

    I once was a kitchen manager at a fairly snooty supper club and learned how to cook from scratch, sauces, knife skills, techniques so I have a good background in all types of cooking, but BBQ has really been up front and center lately

    I am not a stranger to forums with fishing forums being my first choice and found a few that I call home, the other BBQ forum I joined is a great place of nice people but in today’s world another group of friends is just around the corner, that is how I have met some of my best in person fishing buddies – online.  You’ll learn I am not shy and hopefully I can hook up with some other bbq nuts locally.

    My biggest passion is fishing, although I hunt some and garden quite a bit as well.  But back to fishing, I live in the best place on the earth for fresh water fishing, Green Bay has huge walleyes and monster perch, my two favorite inland species, then just a hop, skip and jump down the road is Lake Winnebago, a walleye and perch factory.  Then there's my love affair with Great Lakes Salmon.  It is my obsession, there isn't an hour in the day I am do not at least once think of salmon fishing....

    I am Wildlife Technician for the State of WI DNR.  I am hated by many in the public sector only by my title.  I do not always work and if you cannot differentiate the person from the job, too sad for you.  I have the best job in the world and there are 50 people behind me trying to get in that remind me of this every day.  I am blessed that I do not wake up in a fetal position loathing my life and dreading having to go to work every day, it is an adventure and I have learned to block out the white noise of the haters.

    So with all that, I stop babbling and let this site soak in for a while.  I think my pics might be monitored for a while, (understandable) but here’s a pic of AquaLung

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
