Howdy from California

Post  Uncle Jack on Sun Nov 18, 2007 6:52 pm

Just want to say HI to everyone. I've been cooking real BBQ for only a little over 6 months, but have been grilling for over 40 years. I look forward to exchanging tips, recipes, and experience with all of you. I am a "McGyver" kind of guy so I have lots of toys that I have built or modified myself for BBQing.

I retired in 2002 after 33 years of law enforcement when they wouldn't let me come back to work after open heart surgery. I live in the foothils of the gold country about 50 miles South East of Sacramento, California. My wife and I travel at least 2 weeks of every month with her job. We pull a 5th wheel trailer and pack the old Lab and both cats. Of course I pack my ProQ Frontier everywhere as well and have to date "Qued" in 8 different states. I get a ton of questions about my cooker and it is always a great way to meet new people . . . especially when they taste the end product.

Yesterday I cooked up a turkey and fed 7. Only enough left for a couple of sandwichs.


Wishing you all Sweet Smoke, Uncle Jack

Great to be here.

Not sure how to add photos of my cooks like I have seen by Roxy & Bowhunter. Can you guide an old investigator to the answer? I have several photos of gadgets and cooker modifications that I would like to share as well.

Thanks, U.J.

To post an image here it needs to be hosted somewhere i.e. photobucket, snapfish, ofoto, etc. Most are free.

Photobucket works for me http://photobucket.com/

All you have to do is open your new post, click "img", type the url of your picture and then click "img" again.

It should look something like this

Thanks much. I'll post as soon as I get it figgured out.

By the way . . . where should I post them, "new products", "test area" or other. How about a topic for home inventions?

Turkey Pics

Post  Uncle Jack on Sun Nov 18, 2007 8:54 pm

This is a test to see if I can do it right. Here are the photos of yesterday's turkey . . . before & after. Oh ya, don't pay any attention to the old F - - t in the picture.
