Currently living by Grand Rapids MI and work as a Computer Technician. I have been barbequing for a few years but still consider myself a newbie, but have the whole chickens down perfectly because of this site. For my 50th birthday I got a MES 30, had been using a bullet style with charcoal for a while and still use both. I did my first Pork butt roast yesterday (well still in progress) and can't wait until it is done today. Thought I had it all figured out, but it had other plans and decided to test me and my skills with a super long stall. Have been a long time reader and finally jumped in and joined.
