Hi, my name is Doug and I normally live in Texas by way of Virginia. I'm currently deployed to Iraq and like most everyone here I have a great passion for outdoor cooking. My perfect Saturday usually includes getting up at 5am and getting a brisket or a pork shoulder and some ribs going on the smoker.

I don't get to do that as of recently but I'll be going home on leave soon and you bet there will be a couple of days spent doing just that. I decided to join the forum because I love to talk about grilling and smoking as well as share and learn. I look forward to learning and sharing new ideas here at The Smoke Ring and hopefully make a couple of friends along the way.

Welcome to the forum Doug.

Met some crazy Texans last fall and I got to say they know a good time.

Stay safe my friend.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I'll be sure to post some pics. We have a welding shop and we have turned out some great cookers. One of the builders is on leave now and I want to include him in the pictures so it will be a couple of weeks.
