    Hey there,

    I have never posted anything here, but I have watched a few things.

    I purchased the book SMOKING MEAT a while back and I have read much of it several times.  I am primarily interested in smoking Pork Butt for Pulled Pork Barbeque (Hello, I'm Bill and I'm an addict.)  And Baby Back Ribs.  I have a CharBroil horizontal-offset Smoker that I have very little experience with.
    I am interested in Automatic Grill Temperature Controllers.  Can anyone tell me how well they work?  How user friendly and how durable they are?  I would appreciate Brand Names and model numbers.

    Personally, I live in Northeast Kentucky.  I am retired, I can legally park in the Handicapped spaces and Antique Railroad Pocket Watches fascinate me.  I can cook better than most Women (in a kitchen) and I honestly want to learn to Smoke Pork with the same level of competence.

    In closing, I have had the Pulled Pork Barbeque In Maysville, Kentucky (at Chandler's on Market) several times.  It is in a two way tie for the best I ever ate.  The other contender is the Stable Restaurant at The Biltmore, in Asheville, North Carolina.

    Back to Chandler's, the man is an absolute Wizard with Pig meat!  I can recommend Chandler's with no hesitation.  Oh man, if I can learn to smoke Pork like he does.
