Hello bbq lovers of the world, Oklahoma here. I guess I am supposed to talk about the subject I don't like talking about; myself. Hmm, lets see.... Oldish (hitting the big 5 0 very, very soon). I've been smoking foods for 30+ years, got a job in a BBQ joint as a teenager, the cook went to jail and I took over prepping and cooking (supervisor would start cook, I would finish on school days, sometimes going in before school to start the cook). Here I learned how to make rubs, sauces and pretty much everything to go with BBQ from scratch, we bought nothing already prepared. I currently have 5 smokers and 1 grill. The smokers range in size from dinner tonight to cooking for a large party, and I have had 4 smokers going at one time before. A thread on this forum lead to the 5th smoker purchase and caused me to register here to post a thank you.
