Hello from the Midwest!

Post by smacznego » July 28th, 2018, 5:52 pm

Thank you for having me in your forum! I am from east central Nebraska and I just purchased plans from Frank to try building my 500g tank into a Big Papas Beast! I am just learning all of this and love making sausage, ribs etc! I have recently been doing catering for events so I am excited for this build. I'm a bit intimidated by it because I'm not much of a welder. So I might try to take a class at the local community college. I have never done any competition cooks, that just plain scares the crap out of me! But it looks like so much fun.

Anyway, thank you again for adding me to your forum and thanks for all the great info on here!

Scott

Welcome to the crew.


Learning generally boils down to "Repetition or the avoidance of pain", some people learn by doing, some by watching and some just have to pee on the electric fence.

Welcome aboard!! You aren't the first guy that didn't know how to weld that decided to build a pit so don't let that stop you.

What better project to learn on? Black paint and smoke covers all mistakes and bad welds!

The great thing about a smoker is that your welds don't have to be great I'm excited to see your build
