    So I am both old and new to bbq. I was very active and as life will do on occasion, things dropped away for a bit. This seasons adventures started with the notion that we needed new equipment because my spouse has been decorating mad. Whilst I was at work he "surprised" me with a (wipe your tears from laughing folks) a very stylish copper and stainless gas grill. I didn't take to it, bit he likes it for fast and lazy cooking for large entertaining. Naturally, I ruined the entire patio decor by adding a large smoker/grill Lang hybrid. I get fewer complaints when he eats a half slab in a matter of minutes though.

    I am not a competitor, but I am competitive so I spend a lot of time tasting and comparing and taking it home and perfecting my own. I have only disappointed myself. :) Now I enjoy teaching younger people the art of cast iron cooking and old fashioned bbq.

    By the way. I LOVE Mesquite. I grew up in the southwest and it was everywhete. Here in Ohio you wind up with a lot of hickory and applewood. I will sometimes order in mesquite, but not that often. I like to add moisture to the smoker so you can find all kinds of fluids in the tray on my grill. Just depends on the mood and the day.

    Thanks! I did read the TOS. I am a little concerned about the SPAM rule. Only because I have been to Hawaii and will vacation there again. If they try to smoke it and I have to eat it, I will be compelled to share. ;) (oooh, day one and already sassy.. )
