Name: Matt Age: 25 Location:NW Washington Im excited about finding this forum, itll be nice to get to have some conversations about different topics, instead of hunting down books and articles online. So far I just use an ECB to smoke with that is stored at my parents (live in an apartment), my best dish being pork shoulder. Ive done brisket in the past that turned out OK, but not as well as it could be. I really enjoy campfire and dutch oven cooking as well, but I dont often get a chance to do that. Trying to figure out a way to start the coals on my porch without smoking out the entire apartment building in the process. Ive gotten into BBQ and smoking because there really isnt a presence of it in the PNW. The "BBQ" restaurants around here seem to do things ass backwards by cooking the meat (I think they just bake it), and then adding flavor via sauce and seasoning at the end. People seem to rave about it because they dont really know any different, but I have developed a nice family and friend following so far. A friend of mine and I are exploring opening a restaurant and lounge in the future, but its just an idea at this point.
