    Hello all, new to the forum here, but not so new to smoking. I have been grilling and smoking for quite a few years and even successfully did some competition BBQ. I know a pretty good bit about BBQ (I have the waist size to prove it) but as I feel, will never know it all. I look forward to sharing what I know with everyone and also learning from each of you!!!  Smoke on!!

    I mainly smoke pork, but have been venturing out trying new things lately. I have a Weber Performer that I use a lot, and a week ago became the owner is a new pellet smoker from Green Mountian Grills. That has turned into a fiasco since it didn't work correctly coming out of the box and having to deal with a tech support group who clearly doesn't have customer service on their mind.... Anyway, as a group (the 4 others who I used to do comp with) we own a 16ft trailer complete with SS work prep areas, sink w/ hot water and cabinets. We still do the occasional BBQ comp together and a couple of them do a lot of catering in the side. I lost interest in the comp and catering part due to getting burnt out and going to Iraq for work. Just wasn't interested anymore for the most part. I also got back into deer hunting with my son getting old enough to hunt and had to pick. I am in the Charleston area. As far as smoking fuel, I mainly use Kingsford Charcoal and add wood chips. Mostly hickory, but blend and mix chips to try different flavors. I am also getting into pellets, but as mentioned above, have had my pellet smoker for a little over a week and am still waiting on parts so I can attempt my first successful smoke on it.
