Hello from Abilene, Texas

Hi everybody.
I was saved from another Forum that was getting to far off the subject of BBQ and more into rules and regulations rather than making good food and having fun doing it. I have a 5' long offset smoker on a trailer, a smaller wood / charcoal grill and a gas grill. I built the trailer mounted smoker and the smaller grill. I have been reading alot here today about the drum smokers and think that might be my next project.
Anyways I am glad to be here and look forward to learning from you guys.

Thanks,
Cholo

Re: Hello from Abilene, Texas

Welcome aboard Cholo. I had a good friend in the Navy who was from Abilene, Texas. First guy I met from Texas and he was a real nice guy. Come to think of it, there were a lot of guys from the South and Texas in the Navy back then. That was a long time ago but I imagine things haven't changed that much.

Anyway, we all look forward to your posts and we all love pictures. Let's see some shots of your BBQ.
