    Hello all! I'm Patrick from NC. I make BBQ. Everything BBQ. I use my custom build smoker that has no name other than my ManGrill. I also just got a La Caja China pig roaster. Pretty bad ass. I compete regionally and have won a few. Sorry Texas and Kansas, but you've got nothing on NC. :grilling_smilie:

    I like North Cakalaki they like to cook that easy pork.  Welcome from Texas! 
  7. I gotta admit I enjoyed the pig pickins in N Carolina.  But where I'm from beef is king!  Welcome aboard from a transplanted Texan.  ...but I never had better ribs than in Memphis!

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!

    Oh, you poor deluded soul. The best barbecue comes from the coast of British Columbia, Canada. Fresh caught salmon slow cooked over alder embers and brushed with its own juices is the best Q in the world.

    You guys are ok for a pig but everyone does that.

    Welcome to SMF.

  11. Hello and welcome to SMF! Glad you joined us!

    I have to agree with Mule...everyone has their own taste!

    I will certainly say that I absolutely love west coast Canada. One of my favorite places on earth. But the BBQ is clearly a different style. I like to cook BBQ and do things a little outside of the box too. I do the pig, but do a lot of Asian meets Southern.

    Har If we are finished bragging, the best barbecue is the one you are eating right now! .

    I have been experimenting with Asian style I used to do grilling and trying to change it over to smoking techniques. I've been very happy with the results.

    Welcome to SMF.

    Hi Patrick,  boy you shot a flaming arrow there!  I would say that every region of bbq has something to offer that the others don't.

    One thing you need to know about us is that we like to see pictures of your creations and your gear.  We call it Q-View and its basically the [​IMG]!!!

    ....and I've had pretty good Brisket around Franklin, NC, but some of those places in NC love to put cole slaw on their pulled pork.  [​IMG]

  19. I'll never forget the first time I was asked if I wanted cole slaw I said, "Sure."  Little did I know that it came ON the sandwich....not on the side!!!
