Hello from northeast Nebraska...

Hi All...

I live in a small rural town in northeast Nebraska called Uehling, and I commute 100 miles round trip each weekday to Omaha where I enjoy helping clients with all types of advertising and marketing (print, promo's, multimedia). I've always been a 'foodie' having worked several restaurant jobs as a kid (I'm 49), and caught the bbq bug within the last year or so. I have lots to learn, and I hope to share what (little) I know. I have goals of participating in bbq competitions and maybe doing some weekend catering. Besides grilling and bbq'ing, I love doing things with my kids, and meeting new people with similar interests.

Re: Hello from northeast Nebraska...

Hey Andy hearty welcome sir. Real nice bunch of folks hang out on here. Some of them are a bit eccentric having smoked too much Agent Orange over in Nam etc. Sounds like you are going to have a lot to share. Comp bbq cooking is a highly addictive hobby. Hang on to your wallet. Catering is a great aspect of the food bizness as compared to a retail restaurant. Like the man tole me with catering you know how many people you will have..how much food and help you will need blah blah blah. If you run a bbq joint you roll the dice each day. May need a hundred pounds of brisket today and 5 lbs tomorrow. Person can make money on that hobby.
