Hi from Old Virginny

My good friend Griff introduced me to the WSM and this forum several years ago. Thanks to him and you guys, now I know without a doubt that I can't buy barbecued pork as good as I can make. My sauce of choice is Scott's.

That was a couple of avatars ago. I did have a cow moose but I need a good bull moose pic. This is our 12th straight day of rain. It has washed out the Park's Highway north of Trapper's Creek. Currently there is no road to Fairbanks--that's not necessarily a bad thing. Nothing on the WSM today, but a big pot of chili on the stove. Grant's coming in tomorrow with some fish.

Well, you could get to Fairbanks, but it'd take longer via Glennallen and Delta Junction.

What's Grant bringing? I foresee some grill activity.

I'm getting a pork butt ready to go on the smoker in the a.m. Sorry, those of you who'll be going to work, but some of us can smoke meat any day of the week.

--John
(Speaking of chili, Jody's mom fixed some "chicken chili" with white kidney beans last week. It was really more chicken bean soup, but it was quite tasty.)

well I must admit I was a little worried when you said you knew Griff,
but I think you'll fit right in.

Yeah, it took me a couple of forums to be kicked off of before finding this place.

A little closer in Brian, in Reston. It was still way out in the sticks when we bought 25 yrs ago.

Thanks for the welcome, everyone.

(I get out to Bluemont now and then on my motorcycle. You're hard put to find a rural VA road that isn't pretty and fun-to-ride.)

He's the only buddy from college I still keep track of. He and his wife, Jody, have been to Alaska multiple times. March of '07 we're gonna meet up at his house in Virginia and spend a week, or so, driving around in the Carolinas. Finney, when the time gets closer, I'm going to rely on you for some Q joints to visit.

We want to hit the best representatives of as many of the regional variations of "Carolina" barbecue as possible, constrained only by time ... and wives who like barbecue a lot, but may not be quite as hard-core as we are.
