    Hey folks!

    Another member of the National BBQ News Forum posted a link to information on this forum, so I thought I would visit with y'all for a bit.

    I've got a couple of years experience with backyard smokin' and catering/cookin' for small-large fund raising events. Haven't yet taken the plunge to go full time catering, but it is on the planning board. I've been a risk management type for 28 years and look forward to transitioning over to food service to add a bit more stress to the daily routine in what some might consider the reitrement years.

    I use a WSM and a homemade Pig Cooker (gasser). I am considering a Holstein or a Southern Pride rig for the larger events, and a Lang for comps and cooking for smaller crowds. But, until I stroke the check, I'm always open to look at other cookers. If you have had good experience with other cookers please feel free to share your thoughts. Being a Scot I am also looking for well-cared-for rigs for sale.

    Welcome Scotty. I've been told to beam up a couple times myself. Good luck on finding the right smoker and the catering business.

    Welcome to the forum. Little different "flavor" from here to there, but I think you will have good time here if you hang around a bit.

    Welcome to SMF Scotty. The Southern Pride units seem to get pretty high marks, but I'll admit ignorance on the Holstein line. Alot of us here are just backyard hacks, y'see... ;{)

    There's a few comp teams here that do very well, and a couple catering folk. They can help ya more than I can, but hang around and enjoy!
