    Hey everyone,

    Just checking in to introduce myself. I'm Buckeye born and bred, but now live in Lexington, KY. I have an affinity for good BBQ, which is hard to find here, so I recently decided...if you want something done right, do it your self! I bought an ECB 2 months back to try my hand at ribs. I've done 5 batches. They have progressively gotten better, because I've learned something or two each time. I still have a long way to go, while I consider my ribs now to be edible, I haven't had that WOW batch yet. I've also scoured this forums for the last few days and learned some things.

    By the way, I'm pretty sure I'm getting a GOSM for Fathers Day. Maybe that will elevate my Q some too.

    Make sure you take Jeff's 5-Day coarse.

    Buckeye, Welcome to the SMF. You will learn lots here and be turning out good Q in no time.

    I am curious why you can't find good Que in KY? I grew up on some western KY Que (Paducah and west) and it (being pork) was what I always measured my tastes against. Of course there are lots of other good options in other regions.

    You can find good Q in Kentucky. Just not in the Lexington area. Owensboro is said to have some fine Q, but that's about 4 hours away.
