Hi everyone. Been lurking for a long time, and I have been a member for several years on the BGE forums. I have built smokers and charcoal grills for the past 40 years. I work for an Electric & Gas Utility, so most of my crews are outdoor cooks. Some have pellet grills, smokers, Kamado's, and the standard Weber kettles. Most have at least 1 grill or smoker that I have built for them. I have also made them custom nests and tables for their BGE's or Kamado Joes. It's been a fun hobby.

I am retiring after 41 years, so I plan to do a lot more BBQ cooking, and fabrication work. I cook every weekend for our large family events, and 2-3 tmes a week for my and the wife. Always looking to invent the "better mouse trap", and I enjoy looking at your builds for ideas.

My neighbors always comment on how good it smells in the neighborhood when I am cooking! Looking forward to being able to contribute!

Sounds like you are going to get in trouble here....

And that’s a good thing!

Welcome. Look forward to your builds.
