Found this forum through google, and it looked worth it. Seems you guy's know a thing or 2 about BBQ. Been que'n for about 5 years now. Was using a vertical Brinkman for a few years, finally got fed up with trying to control the heat, and finally built a horizontal off-set myself. Still breaking it in. I only love one thing more than good BBQ, especially my own, and that's my family!
