You may think , here at OC Hackerz and Make we’re just about STEAM. But, our next meetup will be all about SMOKE! There’s a huge BBQ hacker community out there doing some amazing things combining cooking and electronics. 

Make 32: introduced us to the "Nelly Bly Smoker": http://makezine.com/projects/make-32/the-nellie-bly-smoker/

And the Make blog highlighted the “Smart Smoker” which is controlled by an Arduino: http://makezine.com/2014/04/03/smart-smoker-the-better-barbecue/ 

For our Meetup we’ll be making “Mini Weber Smokey Mountain Grills” . This is a competition tested, portable, compact smoker that can be used as an introduction to the world of home-built smoking. If you want to participate in the Build you will need to bring the supplies on the attached parts list. We will have drills, jigsaws, and a riveter on hand. Build time is estimated at 1.5 hours. During the build, we'll have some things smoking so you can have a taste of what to look forward to. Bringing a side dish would be cool!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
