Hey Knine..welcome aboard. Got you a great cooker in that Okie Joe. Had an old pal..that be Burt from down at Jouston who used to lug one of them things around on a special built rack on the back of real nice high dollar 5th wheel trailer to some of the bbq cookoffs. I sometimes get the honor of helping him load and unload that thang. Whew...I still got an aching back on that deal. That bust a gut on two grown men trying to toss one of them gizmos around:) Ya know in fact he copied the baffle off my pit to sorta direct his fire downward as it come outta the firebox. You got any kinda baffling mechanism? Dont be no lurker.

Welcome knine,

I am originally from New Orleans. I've been in North Carolina 21 years now. Time sure does fly!

Smokey_Joe we never ate mullet in New Orleans. When we would catch them in Lake Pontchartrain we would throw them back. They are considered a mud fish.

knine 03-10-2007 11:52 AM

well hello old neighbor . i was gonna go fishing for sum red fish so i could put thme on the gill 1/2 shelled but put it off till tommarow .

bigwheel 03-10-2007 11:40 PM

Well a person cant go wrong with books from Dr. BBQ. I think you will do well. Just connect the dots. He is a great cook and a very nice person.


knine 03-14-2007 09:38 PM
