Default Intro

Greetings all -
I just joined the forum and really like what I see. I am a retired United States Marine living in Suffolk, Va. My wife and I purchased a 1922 Georgia Colonial home back in 2011. While my hobby was once golf - it has now become keeping this jewel in shape (along with doing lots of smoked pork and brisket). Learning a lot about the intricacies of an old home - but having fun doing so. I look forward to learning techniques used by you pro's here. Thanks

Welcome to the forum, Barry.

These old houses really need some TLC, don't they?

Thanks to everyone for welcoming me aboard and yes the old houses need tons of TLC. I now caution folks to be careful before starting any major work on one because you are definitely not going to see everything until you get it started. Amazing some of the things we have found.

Hey, Barry; welcome!
And welcome to the frustrating world of home restoration. My first house was a 1913 Edwardian style building that had been let go to the point of criminality, in my opinion. That's how I fell into contracting...

Welcome Barry. In addition to the wood stuff I have been a KCBS judge and have had a team myself for the past 12 years. We have also catered and vend around 2000 halves and 1000 racks along with the brisket and butts each year.

That's awesome smokindog - We were about 20 minutes from signing the lease on a building to open a restaurant and ran into a little issue with terms being changed last minute. We are members of KCBS - "Barry Fitzgerald's". Haven't competed yet - but would love to. Time has been our issue - Tough when you're retired and have no time....Hoping to have our sauces bottled in near future. I wish you continued success in that arena. Love talking BBQ - as I am probably just a tad bit better than I am at talking wood work - still learning on both accts.
