I like food - especially meat. I like building things. I happen to be a fabricator with no work to do, so I'm bored the last few days and decide I want to make a smoker because, well, why not? Anyway, picked up supplies to build a couple smaller smokers to get my feet wet. I have no idea what I'm doing with the cooking part, but I'm fairly sure I'll be able to piece the equipment together. This and a couple other forums will hopefully lead me to some food more edible than my boiled and propane grilled chicken breasts! Worst case scenario, there may be a couple fresh home made smokers for sale in Albuquerque soon here!
