Hi everyone, I'm new and need an intro. I live in central NC, and I love barbecue (or I wouldn't be here). I've been toying with meat and heat for about 25 years, but seriously pursuing the smoking art about 10 years. I have a Brinkmann charcoal Smoke n Grill and a newer Char Broil electric water smoker. I use sand instead of water, and I use lump charcoal and hickory (a little mesquite) for good smoke flavor. Smoked ribs are my favorite, but I do lotsa other stuff, too. I look forward to looking around the forum and chewing the fat from time to time.
