    Just joined the forum, and really looking forward to connecting with so many people as into q as i am. I live in Mexico City but grew up in Houston so texas bbq reminds me of grest times as a kid. I have never owned a smoker but have wanted one for a while, the issue is you just cant find any for sale over here in Mexico (even though i Know some brands make their smokers on this side of the boarder).
    Every once in a while i look on the mexican equivalent of ebay for an offset smoker in the hopes that someone might be selling one and to my surprise, a couple of weeks ago someone posted offset smokers for sale, so i went ahead and contacted the seller and he sent me some pictures of the smoker, right away I could tell the puctures were not his but off of another site (matt bbq pits) but the seller seemed to know what he was talking about so i went ahead and bought a pit from him. It is my first pit and have been asking him for pitures of the progress and he sent some last week and a few more this mirning, but i eanted the input of some of the more experienced members of the forum, how you see it.
    More than likely i will have to do some mods but i want to know what yall think, and if there is anything in particular i should fix right away. [​IMG]

    Anyways looking forward to hearing your comments and critiques.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Glad to have you aboard. 

    Your smoker looks like a well built unit.

    Can't wait to see it in action.
