    Cheers from Lompoc, CA

    All,

    I've followed this site for years, but never joined. Well FedEx is currently en route to my house today to drop off my spanking new 18" WSM so I figured it was time to join in the fun. Please be patient as I haven't posted on forums in a few years and I will need to relearn the syntax and such for things. Also, I need to find a place to host pictures.

    I'm a brewer on the central coast of California, so if you are ever in Lompoc or Solvang drop by one of my joints and I'll buy you a beer!

    Cheers!

    Chris

    Thanks. I had a Cabela's branded Masterbuild propane 7 in 1 for a long time and I smoked a lot of great meat on it, but I'm ready now to get a bit more hard core. I have already ordered a heatermeter to stoke my geek self......

    Prolly The Renown Mr. Brown this weekend to break it in..... We will see. I love that recipe.

    I was just down at Cachuma Lake Recreation Area for The Golden State Battle barbecue competition. If I'm down for it next year, I'd like to visit one of your joints. What and where?

    I'm master brewer at Solvang Brewing Company. We have locations in Solvang, and Lompoc. I had not heard of that competition, but I haven't been looking because I haven't had a smoker for a while, but now I do.

    It's quite a coincidence that in my trip report, the second photo includes the Solvang Brewing Company sign.
