Newbie from NC

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by the boardsmith, Sep 24, 2009.

  1. I just found this forum and registered immediately. Why? I bought a Perfect Flame gas smoker from the local Lowe's a few weeks ago ($119.00) and tI am rying to learn how to use it. Since there were no real instructions or recipes with the smoker, I did a search and found this forum. BINGO! Just what I was looking for.

    Me? I love to eat and enjoy smoked meats. I love Lexington style BBQ, I am a charter member of the NC BBQ society, I make professional grade and sized end grain butcher blocks, I don't have a lot of free time but I like to cook, I own some high end Japanese knives and enjoy how they perform and I am looking forward to reading more on this forum.

    Welcome from another person in NC!

    You'll find lots of good info here.

    Once you start making your own barbecue, you'll enjoy it much more than anything in the restaurants. At least that's the way I am now.
