Hey everyone My name is Tim and I'm from Detroit Michigan. I took up smoking and BBQ'g about 2 years ago when I purchased a Char-Griller drum smoker at Lowes. I am relitivley new to it, however, I feel that I'm a pretty good cook in general. I want to get more involved with competitions and learning to perfect my craft. So if anyone has any helpful hints or is interested in getting something going in the Metro Detroit area I am surely interested.
