    Good afternoon, I've been lurking for awhile and finally decided to join. My name is Stephen, I'm 48 from Texas but decided to go by Brute on here (Brute was my college football nickname). I've been grilling, bbq'ing and smoking meats since my teens. My love for this started as a child helping my grandpa, dad and uncles cook some great meats on the weekends. I have 1 custom pit, 1 grill I made out of an old tractor rim, 1 MES electric smoker with "cold smoker attachment", 1 gas grill and 1 4'x4'x5' wood pit I use for smoking that I built myself. My wife thinks I'm a total redneck for having so many outdoor cookers! I'll post pics of them later when I get a chance. 😀 My favorite meats to smoke are: briskets, pork butts and shoulder clods. I'm a professional safety engineer and love that as much as I love cooking outdoors. So that's me in a nutshell.... Glad to be a part of this forum!

    Welcome to the site Brute.  I look forward to seeing some of your cookers and smoking projects.

    Nothin wrong with being an outdoor cooking redneck, as far as I am concerned.

    Welcome from SC, Brute. It's good to have you on this site. Your experience is sure to be an asset. With your background, be careful around all of those cookers. We sure don't you to be tied up filling out OSHA reports.

    Good luck and keep on smokin', Joe.
