    I have been following this forum for quite a while and decided to finally join! Seems like a great bunch of folks!

    I grew up in Southern Illinois, blessed to have great BBQ from Mike Mills and Pat Burke ( 17th Street and Tower Rock) right around the corner from me.. literally. BBQ is its own food group in my home! Currently live in Northern Illinois though, and good BBQ is hard to come by, unless coming out of my backyard!

    I'm an avid smoker--I try to smoke something good every weekend! My favorite is Boston Butts.Currently I am using a MES 30 for the ease. I typically make my own sauces and rubs, and also buy some if they are appealing enough!

    Looking forward to learning and hopefully being able to contribute!

    Butts Up!
