Hello from Texas

I am new to the board. I have been burning meat and clogging my arteries for a few years. I am looking forward to the wealth of knowledge on this board and hope that I can improve my bbq skills from items posted on the board.

Howdeeeey Don! Welcome aboard. You've come to the right place. I've never been to Texas but hope to visit someday soon. They tell me they do good BBQ there.

Re: Hello from Texas

Gotcha Don. Lew..the only bbq in Texas which is fit to eat comes from somebody's back yard. Now I hear about yankees who go down to the Hill Country and brag on the bbq but I dont think the galloping gourmets in question is normally very well attuned to whut it supposed to taste like. The best bbq for the least money comes from KC. Now I aint shore whut state that is but it bound to be either Kansas or Missourri. It may even be sorta like Texarkana which is Texas on one side of the street and Arkieville on the other. They have a similar problem on a smaller scale up in Amarillo cuz part of the town is in one County and the other part is in another. Stuff like this can get cornfusing to a person.

Re: Hello from Texas

Welcome Don.

I am originally from East Texas and I too have never heard of your town. I hate it when that happens.

Re: Hello from Texas

The town where Don hangs his hat seems to located about midways tween Moonshine Hill and Lake Jouston. Google is such a handy reference. Glad to know it aint close to Channelview. Everybody in that town got some kinda overdue arrest warrant out for em. That where the would be cheerleader Mama was plotting to fatally injure the opposition a few years back. They made a movie about it. It would not be a surprise to find out DB Cooper might be hanging around that area.
