Newbie (Sort of)

I guess I'm not technically new since I registered a while back. But, I haven't been able to log on too often. If you say my board name out loud, you can probably figure out why.

I found the site late spring/early summer last year, I believe, while I was browsing looking for plans to build a pit. My wife said, "I don't think we need to build that", so I bought a smoker instead, without prior permission. Since she's tasted my "talents", she'd probably agree to me building one now.

I bought a Char-Griller from Lowe's. Been real happy with it so far, but I can tell it won't be my last. Since early last summer, I've done baby backs, boston butts, whole shoulder, beef roast, beer can chicken. All of those more than once except the beef roast -- it was good, just haven't had the chance to do it again yet. Last fall, we had a football, barbeque, and boiled peanuts party with about 35 folks over to the house. (I'm in South Carolina, so when we say "barbeque" it means pulled pork unless otherwise specified.) Have done several others with smaller groups.

I pop in from time to time to look at recipes and tips on smoking the perfect piece of meat. =P~ Thanks for everyone's contributions.

Welcome!!!
How 'bout some pics of your "talents".
Nothin' wrong with the Chargriller. If you're a welder there
shouldn't be a problem building your own pit. Just do it!!!

Welcome Seapryay, I am in Denmark SC 50 miles south of you on Hwy 321. Sounds like you have been busy on your smoker.

Had to be - you know, to justify the purchase. As I said, the wife hasn't complained once about the cost since she tasted the product. Plus, smoking the meat's just too much fun to only do it a couple of times a year. And the ooh and aahs from neighbors and friends just do wonders for the ego.
