Hey guys! My name's Josh. While I'm not new to smoking meat or smoking-meat.com, I just realized yesterday there was a forum that I was missing out on! I'm currently in pharmacy school at Auburn University. I picked up smoking meat when I was out at a local chain bbq restaurant. As I was eating the dry overpriced meat, I was thinking for this price I could make meat twice as good and twice as much. I'm self taught and I have the most basic of a cue setup (ECB). I have successfully done prok, chicken, turkey, and beef cuts. My overall favorite is the Boston Butt so far. I like to think of myself as an "on the uprise" smoker. I only know a few basics but I know enough to make my friends and family go crazy. I probably won't ever be good enough to compete in competitions or anything but I know as long as I love doing it, I'll be still smoking when I'm 90 years old.
