Yes a hello from the freakshow state, I get to say that well because I am from Florida and frankly that is why we have our own entry on fark.com ha. I started smoking because well i love good bbq. There are plenty of places around where they offer up some great bbq but also pay a high price for low and slow. Being in I.T. I tend to be a little over logical but why am I paying 10 dollars for a pull pork sandwich and some fries when I can make smoke a pork butt and make a ton of sandwiches and frankly bbq gets better after a few days rest. I figured I join and stead of just lurking around as I been pretty sucessful so far lots of people have told me how good my stuff has come out but I want to get better and I been asked to cater my company's next monthly meeting /lunch and learn and will say could use the guidance of some pros to make sure everyone is well feed and taken care of .
