Im Drew. Always loved BBQ and especially Smoking. Looking to learn alot and have a bunch of Fun while Im at it. Im self employed so my time is as flexible as I desire. Go to Every Buffalo Bills Game with a good size group and Live near Syracuse. Looking forward to learn from this site. Havnt been apart of a Forum online as of yet but Im looking forward to it. I signed up today since I am throwing a birthday party for a buddy of mine. First Whole Hog 180 lbs and dont want to look like an fool. Im also doing 2 Briskets as a late night snack. I tried the Wood Chicks resipe from BBQ Pittmasters and it was bang on. Well at least from what I have been doing previously. Utimately I would like to Join or create a team that wants to get involved in a few competitions. Serious about learning while having a few and a killer time. Work hard play hard thats what Im about. Own a couple businesses and another startup on the way. Need a balance to all that boring work. So figured I would try this out. Spent 8 years in the maines active also from 93-01. That should sum it up. Look forward to learning more about BBQ and meeting some Cool people.
