Hello from Edmond, OK

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by soonersmoker, Sep 11, 2008.

  1. My name is Abe Newton. I've charcoal grilled for several years (even had a little electric one when I lived in an apartment), and I grew up watching my dad charcoal grill. I also worked as a butcher at Albertson's while in college getting a computer science degree (little did I know that BBQing would turn out to be my real passion). I've just in the last 4 months started learning how to slow-smoke meats. I'm using a CharGriller Smokin Pro offset smoker. Anyways, I've learned a lot on this forum, and I'm having a blast. I've cooked something almost every weekend since I got the smoker back on Fathers day. I just want to make BBQ and watch football. I'm hoping to get to know some of you guys in the OKC area, so that we can have some cookouts. I'll root for Oklahoma State as well, as long as they're not playing my Sooners.

    welcom Abe from VA, you will be a great smoker and meet more great folks that feel the same way about meat that you do. At least I don't think I met a Vegitarian on here yet.
  9. Thanks. I hope your enjoying Virginia. I was fortunate enough to get to live in Maryland / Virginia for about a year and a half. My brother lives on the north side of Baltimore now. Those are two of the most beautiful states I've ever seen. I love me some Rockfish and some crabs. I got hooked on Old Bay seasoning while I was up there. I use it in a lot of my cooking now.
