I started in Backyard competitions about 5 years ago. After 2 years with good finishes, I decided to turn Pro. My first year was definitely a learning year. Hardly any calls and numerous taste profile changes. The last two years have been pretty successful. I cook primarily on 3 ugly drum smokers. I am excited to take the next step and turn my Reserve Grand Championships into Grand Championships with the help of my new Stumps Classic.

That is great. I have been kicking around the idea of trying some of the local comps here in Iowa. I think it would be fun. I need to get my wife on board with the idea. You are going to love your Stumps. Looking forward to seeing some posts when you get it. If you have any questions someone on here will be able to answer them for you.

Welcome to the forum greighard.

You are sure making a statement going from UDS to a Classic. Put a Guru on that Classic and you will not know what to do with your extra time. This will be very handy for comps and overnights. Looking forward to reading more of your posts and pictures. We love pictures.

I have a Big Drum Smoker that I have been using for a a number of years but the messing around and small capacity have finally gotten to me. I'll put a picture of mine below. They can turn out some nice Q though. I'm excited that the Stumps keep great moisture due to the tight seal, which is one of the pros of the UDS family, the steam created from the meat dripping on the coals. I'm in line for my Stumps though....

Looking forward to seeing what masterpieces come from your stumps!

-Kevin

Kevin, Nice to see you didn't get clobbered by an angry wife over the weekend. :?

Many pictures of food are listed here on the forum.

viewforum.php?f=31&start=0


That will keep you busy for a few hours searching old posts. Now what to do with the remaining time until that XL gets delivered???

So Mark I haven't had full disclosure with the wife yet....I have been dropping hints and tell her she can get whatever she wants for Christmas, so that has been communicating something to her for sure....I have been getting nervous about how big that XL Stretch is going to be...I also told her I would be selling my other smokers - and that I have purchased the last smoker of my life :shock: ....

Well................... I don't think you will be able to hide it very long. You would need a single car garage to roll that beast into. :lol: I hope I get a chance some day to see it.

RookieQ welcome to the forum, I see this is your first post. I hope you can join in on conversations and ask any questions you may have. There are a wealth of BBQ knowledge here with so many guys willing to help out.



These are far from professional quality videos or competition quality food.

Watching these videos again is like torture....My XL is just a twinkle in Stump's eye right now.... Hey Mark, would you be able to give me the model of your battery pack you use so you don't have to drag an extension cord around? If it is a 12v system, did you have to get an adapter for your digiQ?

I'm also wondering if I should upgrade to the CyberQ since my wireless reaches out to where I'll be smokin.....
