Hello all. I had my first taste of bbq 14 years ago. I moved to Arkansas, and we ate at this little run down dive. We didn't know what to expect. they brought my sandwich out with coleslaw on it. I wasn't very happy, but i deiced to give it a chance. after 4 bites, i ordered a second sandwich to take home with me. I have been hooked ever since. I have used charcoal grills to smoke, electric, and now i am using the pit boss wit ha smoke daddy attached. I work in the information services department of our local hospital. I love my job, but i am ready to follow my passion. I want to open up a bbq joint. I have spent 5 years perfecting my rub, my sauce and my sides. everyone tells me I should go for it. I have been catering to groups of 10-30 people, and have never had one complaint. I am here to learn the ins and outs, as well as find out the recommendations for equipment and start up supplies. Thank you all, and i look forward to leaning from you guys and gals.
