Hello smoking meat forum. They call me Teelow99, and I'm born and raised here in Bay Area California. My occupation is in building engineering, and I absolutely love to bbq any chance I can get. I started out cooking on the grill about 15 years ago on a 22" webber kettle and have since move on to slow smoking on an offset smoker. I've cooked everything from whole packer briskets to whole turkeys and several slabs of ribs. I basically taught myself how to grill by watching family members cook to reading books on grilling. I've come a long way since I began cueing some 15 years ago. My goal is to someday enter the world of competition bbq. I joined this site to get some ideas, gather some useful techniques and meet some good folks along the way. I'm looking forward to sharing some pics of some of my bbq dishes and just getting acclimated to the forum. Thanks in advance for allowing me to join your wonderful forum!
