Hello, my name is Phil and I'm from West Michigan. I've been lurking around this site for a few months, trying to soak up as much info as my little brain can handle. I'm just about ready to start my first smoker build ever and I'm pretty sure I'm going to need all the help I can get. I've been grinding and welding metal for 15 years, so I should be good with the fab part of the build, I'm just not to sure with the firebox/ rf plate/ chimney part of the build. So here's your fair warning, I'll be askin lots of questions in the future.
