My name is Jay and I am from Sherwood, OR. I am fairly new to smoking but not new to eating good BBQ. I am definitely a foodie with BBQ and pizza tendencies. I currently use a Weber Gold 26" Kettle with a Smokenator. My goals are to get a Brinkmann Trailmaster LE with some modding to turn it into a budget beast of a smoker. My dream set up would be a Yoder YS640. I love ribs and am dying to do a brisket and a Boston butt. My wife makes our rubs and they rock! I am a retail manager for a big company and grilling/cooking helps me relax. This site will be my main resource for honing some skill withe the grill.
