I love BBQ, as we all do. I was indoctrinated by a my good buddy, a hog farmer that went from pen to plate starting at 0500 and ending with feeding everyone at whatever celebration paid us. We used a burn barrel with hickory embers feeding an old oval pig cooker that never moved- we carried it to them, ready to eat. So I know the work involved and it is truly a labor of love for good fresh farm raised Q. I cook a bunch of Q a couple of times a year for our Boy Scouts or neighbors who need to raise some funds for health issues, or whatever. I'm ready to step it up and build my own RF smoker to aid in that process and perhaps start the boys college fund. I would love to hear your experiences and contributions to the thread I started: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/158640/beginning-a-big-rf Thanks.
