New Memeber from Illinois

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 



I have been following this forum for quite a while and decided to finally join! Seems like a great bunch of folks!


I grew up in Southern Illinois, blessed to have great BBQ from Mike Mills and Pat Burke ( 17th Street and Tower Rock) right around the corner from me.. literally. BBQ is its own food group in my home! Currently live in Northern Illinois though, and good BBQ is hard to come by, unless coming out of my backyard!


I'm an avid smoker--I try to smoke something good every weekend! My favorite is Boston Butts.Currently I am using a MES 30 for the ease. I typically make my own sauces and rubs, and also buy some if they are appealing enough!


Looking forward to learning and hopefully being able to contribute!


Butts Up!

First off welcome to SMF there DZ. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.
