Found this site and forum when I was looking for a recipe to smoke some chuck roast over the holidays. I have been grilling and smoking for over 20 years and started by helping my mom smoke briskets on her Brinkman smoker way back in the day. I have a grill problem (at least in the eyes of others) in terms of possessing a variety of grills from my little Weber Smokey Joe to my newest addition, an IPT wood pellet grill and many others in between. My pride and joy is a what I think is a Tulsa Cooker that was given to me as a graduation gift about 15 years ago. It was purchased from Sams and this is a heavy duty all steel upright chest type smoker that can handle up to 8 good sized pork butts if need be. I have never seen anything like it and you only find something of this quality from a custom smoker builder. I continue to learn more and more everytime I cook something that is more unique like the chuck roasts I tried over the holidays. I live in Central Illinois, but grill all year round even if I have to shovel snow to get to my cookers. I am a transplanted southerner and still like the vinegar/mustard based sauce I grew to love from Sims BBQ in Little Rock, Arkansas. I am a project manager for a large yellow earthmoving equipment company. I ride MX (dirtbike racing) with my boys and I can often be found at the track in my camper using my grill to whip up something tasty even it if is grilled pizza. Looking forward to learning more from all of you and sharing my outdoor cooking experiences. Keeping the firehot and lid down in Central Illinois!
