A note of thanks!

I just wanted to extend a thank you to all of those who do such a great job of providing advice and information such as the how to's, lens and camera advice and all of the supportive feedback. I've learned a ton just from reading the posts here.

Thanks Steve for the info on the canon site. As I shared my intersst in picking up a good used 30D with a friend, he decided it would be a great time to upgrade and so I bought his 30D with a 28-135 IS lens (he's very particular about his camera so I know its been babied). Then just today I purchased a barely used canon 100-400mmL IS lens after much deliberation between that and the Sigma 120-400mm OS. I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Just wanted to share my excitement about the new equipment and my gratitude for all of the great information that is shared in the posts. Thanks!

Denise, that's great! You've now got all the basic camera/lens gear a person needs to turn your vision into art. Or at least to have a darn LOT of fun. smilesmile

mnfishingal You have some of the same equipment that I have so I know the fun is just beginning grin The only thing that you might want to invest in is a tripod. I thought that my 100-400 was a soft copy but realized that I must drink too much coffee cause my shots just did not seem as sharp as I would like and when I started using a tripod it made a world of difference. I bought a cheap one off the bay and got just what I paid for cry Pay a little more for quality and it will last a lot longer. Have fun and make sure to share some of those shots with us.

Hey I think the 30D 100-400mm set up might just be the most popular camera/lens combo being shot on this board!

I enjoy mine and I know you will too!

Jay after seeing all the birding people get off the bus last weekend with the 100-400 it makes you think you should invest in Canon grin

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
