Hello, my name is Bryan. I retired from the Air Force in 2001 after 20 years of service. I moved to Arkansas where I am the chair of the business department at a community college. My wife Gladys and I have 6 children, 4 boys and 2 girls. Most are grown and out of the house. I’ve been grilling for years but I am new to smoking. I have an ECB that was given to me as gift. I came across this site by accident when I was looking for a recipe for a rub to use on some baby back ribs I was going to smoke a couple of weeks ago. I ended up buying Jeff’s rub and really enjoyed it. I followed the advice from some of the treads and the ribs came out great. Today I am smoking a butt, following the “Basic Pulled Pork” thread. So far, so good. Looking forward to dinner..
