Hey all. I realized I had not posted a Roll Call when I joined. So here goes. Where to start.....I like fishing, the Miami Dolphins, travelling, cooking,and of course BBQ. What am I writing a personal ad? All I have to thro win is the whole long walks on the beach thing and there ya go. LOL. I'm a comedian and always have fun. I am originally from Miami but made stops in Vegas and even North Dakota before coming back to Florida. I live in the Tampa area now. I have always wanted to BBQ and never really had good success until my wife got me the MES 40" SS for Father's Day this year. (only had grills before, never a smoker). While I was searching for tips on the web, I came across this awesome site and have been inspired by you folks these past few weeks. So far everything has come out great as I have followed advice found here. Since finding you folks, I have smoked my first butts, ribs, pork loin, chicken, and fatties. Everything has come out great. So I am glad to be part of this community and plan to stay active and help where I can while still getting help for myself. I plan to introduce my BBQ to the world (or at least my wife's co-workers) on Labor Day Weekend. Gonna go with fatties, rbs, and pulled pork. And I know they will be wowed!!! So thanks again for all of the support. PS: The FM in FMCowboy comes from Fargo-Moorhead when I lived in North Dakota. My real name is Al, but you can called me FM if you like. Thread on!!!
