I'm Barry Adams, 32 years old, and live in Northeast Indiana.
I've been married 9 years and have 2 boys, ages 4 and 1.
I'm a mechanical engineer from Purdue and have designed and tested heavy truck clutches for the past 13 years.
I grill on a D ucane (I have no complaints about it, but maybe that's because until I purchased it I was grilling on a little portable unit )
I picked up a WSM after lurking for several months to see what all the fuss was about.
I now look for projects to do arou nd the house on the weekends in order to stay home and
babysit the Q' instead of going out to eat every weekend.(I haven't convinced the wife yet that maintaining the temp is a full time job)

The advice from this forum has been wonderful and it is nice to get a little more information about a group of people that one feels they already seem to know a little bit.
Thanks to Ray for providing this forum!
