Hello Folks!!

I caught the BBq bug when I was in the USAF stationed in Texas. I was lucky enough to become friends with a gentlemen that knew everything you could think about cooking low and slow. I started out on a barrel cooker, and have moved up to my current cooker, an Oklahoma Joe (longhorn).
I didn't have the money to invest in a cooker, so I purchased the Oklahoma Joe and did some modifications and it cooks very well. I enjoy any type of outdoor cooking, from a grill to an open fire. I hope to meet many people on this site and learn something from everyone.

I have done the following mods; added door gaskets and latches (cooking chamber and firebox), added internal stack extension, added 2 cooking grate level thermometers, used sealant to seal up smoker at all connection points and a tuning plate. I now have a 5 degree temperature difference between the firebox side and the stack side of the smoker. Not to mention less fuel consumption.

Cool stuff
I got a good one no leaks that I can see, I only cook for 2 people at a time 99% of the time.
I just stay far left from fire box and run 225 all day long
