Ragweed, I'll take a sledge hammer to the OBS before it interferes with my golf!!!!

Ditto. Although I am not yet a single digit player, this is the main reason I do not smoke as much as I used to. I did not start playing golf until about 6 months prior to retiring.

lol  I play golf as a retirement occupation. It keeps me active and alive. I eat for nourishment so that I can continue to play golf. I smoke to make partaking of nourishment more pleasurable. Somewhere in there I partake of adult beverages. Adult beverages helps me by reducing the frustrations of golf, it enhances my patience while smoking, and I am convinced it aids in the digestion of my nourishment. Isn't life great when everything works together?

I always thought golf courses were a waste of good mule riding and hog hunting land. ;)

I look at golf like this: if all those guys on the golf course were trying to get a boat in the water instead of golfing I'd never get any fishing done!

Naw - Most of the time they build golf courses on land that has all but been depleted of game. ;D

In my younger years I ran track, played basketball, baseball, tennis, table tennis, football, wrestled, and boxed for a short period. Back then I looked at golf as a sissy game. When I finally tried it I found it extremely challenging. I now think of all the sports it is the hardest sport to be good at. Physically almost everyone can play it, but excelling in it is another story.

I see BBQing and smoking meat in the same light as I do golf.  I did the same thing as I did last time, but the results were vastly different. Ive used bullet smokers (gas and electric) in years past.  One time I did a smoked turkey Southern Living would be proud to have on its cover and it was unreal.  Tried the same thing again and it tasted chemically and I threw it out.  Golf used to be that way for me, but I fould the secret (the secret is different for everybody so don't ask LOL).  The OBS is making smoking meat fun again because I can more depend on the results.  Forums like this also add to the experience and make it much easier to do things the right way.  I disagree on the "physically almost everybody can do it".  I agree people can pick up a club and hit the ball somewhere.  However, being able to swing a golf club almost 100 mph while hitting a golf ball hundreds of yards to a desired target 4 inches in diameter takes physical strength and flexibility that I have to work hard at keeping at my age (51). When golf, hunting, fishing, and smoking meat are your vices, then you're not a bad guy in my book.  :)

Well I'm 3/4 of the way there! Just never did cotton on to the golf thing. (Probably for the best anyway, can't afford anymore hobbies)
