    Hello from Pleasant View, TN

    Hi All! Larry here. I have been grilling and cooking out since I was in college in the 80’s. In 2006 I started wanting to do competitions. I started with a Brinkman Smoking Pit offset smoker from Walmart and a $40 bullet smoker from Lowe’s. Buy some crazy fate we finished 6th in chicken the first time out. Thus a new addiction began. The team name was Big Blue BBQ. That is why I had to have the blue Kettle.

    I now have a Jack’s Old South Patio cooker I bought from Myron after attending a cooking class at his house, a Traeger 075, WSM 18.5 and 22.5, and a blue Weber Kettle Gold. I also have a gasser for burgers and dogs when some semblance of our 4 kids and 12 grandkids come over.

    I am fairly good with the 18.5 but can’t get a really long burn with the 22.5. No modifications to either WSM.

    Looking at the forum there are a lot of folks here a lot smarter about these than me. I love my stick burner but sometime like the ease of WSM’s.
