Hello From South Jersey

I purchased a WSM about a year ago and have loved smoking with it. I grill a lot on my OTG too. Despite having virtually no mechanical skills, I am looking into build a UDS. I found drums nearby and have been reading up how to build them without welding.

I found this site via 007bondjb's YouTube channel. Someone somewhere posted a link to one of his videos the other day.

Thanks for hosting these fora. I look forward to learning here.

Hey RD welcome. Joisey huh? Which exit? lol..I just love to say that for some reason. Seems like somebody who went by Mark "Runs with Scissors" Stephens used to use the phrase on his tagline. Ain't heard anything out of that boy in years. Me and him clashed a lot for some reason. Now kindly tell us how yall cook Johnsonvilles up there? Thanks.
