My name is Hugh and I'm 83. I retired from DOD after 34 years of service. My job started with working with electronics but was promoted to management. Obviously I've been BBQing for some time and I'm still learning. My previous smoker was the offset firebox style. One time I smoked pulled pork for 54 people for a party at my home. I just purchased a 14.5 WSM and have several cooks on it. I have completed a cart for the WSM and I'm now starting a DIY project for temperature control using a PID.
