    w/ that opening line , thought for sure you were gonna say "welcome from a wolverine" [​IMG] ,lol .
  16. I did a fattie for easter, too! What a perfect celebration of new life...with a cholesterol bomb. ROFL. You're going to have to share the knowledge you have amassed on brisket. Looking forward to the posts!
  17. HEY! ANOTHER BUCKEYE! I grew up in the norther part of Ohio, little town called Elmore about 20 min SE of Toledo, heard of it? Anyway, Welcome to the site, from a fellow person that understands the ONLY state that can be Round on BOTH sides and HI in the middle!

    lol, nice punchline ....have'nt heard of elmore,OH. But i've got some family up in Toledo.

    The only thing i can honestly say that i learned on my own & not from here thus far is my rub & marinade for my briskets & i guess the low & slow approach.my first few years i cooked them in the oven b4 my smoker was here & i could'nt beleive how good they were , add the smoking into that equation & it was 10x better. I find myself acting like Jon Stewart in the movie Half Baked (sorry if knowones familiar w/ the movie, it's a stoner comedy ala cheech & chong).... talkin to everyone about anything & everything smoked & wondering aloud how it might be.
  19. So what part of Ohio you located? My parents and I moved from Missouri to Ohio when I was young so we knew what BBQ was. To most Ohioans, BBQ was defined as cooking meat over coals. To us BBQ isn't a verb, it's a noun. My folks and I would go to the local "Chicken BBQ" (Chicken Grilling) and bring our own bottle of KC Masterpiece. Boy did we get some funny looks!

    I have a buddy of mine, up there, that doesn't even know what a Brisket is! He also thinks BBQ is fried chicken tenders dipped in BBQ sauce[​IMG] ! It's so sad!
    Anyway, I'm glad to see ya'll up there are spreading the knowledge of what REAL BBQ is.

    We're about 40-50 minutes NW of Columbus in Kenton,OH . Close to Findlay ,Bellefontaine , Marion . Yeah brisket is'nt always easy to find around here. Krogers seemed to stock up around st. pattys day. Unfortunately until recently i always had to go to my local meat place & usually get a frozen one ( unless i got lucky) , because most people around here have no idea wth one is.btw having lived in OH for awhile have you ever heard of a lil rib joint called the new riegel cafe?? They are some of the best ribs you'll ever eat . not BBQ & they don't even use a BBQ sauce , but they are great.
