Hello all... Most forums you find, you lurk around for a month or so, and then if you think the forum has some meaningful purpose and you finally feel inclined to say something, you eventually become a member. NOT THIS FORUM. I joined the day after I found this jewel. I'm 25 yrs. old. Live in Brevard County, FL. Married and have a 6 month old baby girl. Financial Advisor with NYSE Member Firm (Shameless plug in case anyone needs some help). I also have 3 Pure Bred Boxers. Worked at Texas Roadhouse for 3 years in High School. Worked the grill for the last 2 years I worked there. And that... is where the passion... began. After assuredly consuming my weight in steak, chicken and ribs; any kind of cooking that involved meat, I was all for it. Purchased an ECB for $1 at a garage sale about 3 years ago. It has held up well and smoked many a wonderful pieces of meat. Now I feel is the time to upgrade. For the time being I can use my neighbors, Char-Broil side firebox smoker. I'm thinking about buying a New Braunfels that is for sale locally. (Thought about offfering $60 for it. Is it worth it? It's in pretty good shape.) However, I would truly like to build my own reverse flow. I can get any size used propane tank for $35 and my neighbor has his own shop with welding and metal working tools. Once work commences, pictures, stats, and specs will be released. Have found a lot of great info so far over the past 2 weeks. Thanks to all the intelligent posts, and to the others, thanks for making me feel smarter. By the way, anyone who lives near the area, I know of someone clearing out some Orange Trees, about 5 lots worth, and offering the wood to anyone who wants to load up. I have all I need right now. Not to mention i split enough oak this past weekend to last me a year. God Bless.
