Hello from Monrovia. That's California, not Liberia.

Hello everyone,

I've been cooking and barbecuing for a long time now. A long time ago, I worked as a line chef in a big-deal French restaurant, Chez Panisse. Overall, I think my approach is a mix of Alice Waters "California," James Beard "Americana" with a healthy dose of smoke. I'm not a pro cook anymore, and haven't been for decades. Just another guy with a hobby. And a few toys too.

The "low and slow" has mostly been on small offsets of one sort or another. Grilling's good too. Lots of different grills, gas and charcoal, in my past. Currentl equipment is a Bar B Chef Offset Smoker with an Afterburner H for heat, and a Bar B Chef Texas Charcoal Grill. I guess using gas in the smoker and charocal in the grill is upside down compared to most folks.

I found out about this forum by following a link posted by Captain Morgan on another forum. After looking around I think I've got plenty to learn and hope I can add something too. A lof of the fun of this is helping people new to it.


Rich

I thought I'd say thanks to everyone for the welcome. (Looks like there's afew familiar faces.) And, in true newguy fashion, see what my avatar looked like without actually posting content.

Let's not get carried away here Bill. The term "best" is often a term used in relative terms.

But this place is definately in the "better" than most of the rest.
