Hi there. I'm from Tulsa. I cook a lot, and I grill a lot. I'm pretty methodical about it, and I pay a lot of attention to trying to perfect my "technique" for cooking different things. I'm particularly a fan of grilling ribeye steaks, which we get USDA Choice from the local market here and they turn out amazing. I'm just getting into smoking meat. Last weekend I grilled a boston butt in my Weber charcoal grill, and I was really successful at maintaining a temperature right around 215-225 degrees and the pork turned out amazing. So now I'm looking for some more things to smoke. I'm thinking about doing either some pork or beef ribs this weekend. I've thought for a while that I'd like to buy a smoker. Even though I don't have much experience smoking meat, like I said - I'm kind of into "perfecting my technique". And smoking meat seemed like a worthy pursuit to try to become expert in. But for now I'm going to stick with the Weber.
