Roll Call for KaizersCall

post #1 of 22

Hi Everyone,

I am a NewBee to the site and have to tell ya I am impressed and excited what I see! My name is Richie and I live in Weymouth Mass which is 15 minutes south of Boston. I'm a sheetmetal worker by trade. I enjoy Fishing, softball, cooking, gardening,and most of all my family. I am 41 years old.

 I got into BBQ when a friend in work brought in some babybacks that he smoked. WOW! That was it, and I had to learn how to do

these for my self! My buddy walked me though getting a smoker like his(Brinkman GeatOutdoors propane), gave me a rub recipe and

the step process of how to smoke BabbyBack Ribs. My first batch were a complete disaster! I put too much rub on them(like 1/8 thick crust) and under cooked! LOL they were terrible. But as you all know try and try again till you master it.

  I signed up for Jeffs monthly mailing here about 4 years ago after purchaseing his rub and BBq sauce recipe,and have tried quite a few of his different recipes. Gutta say I get a ton of compliments on the different things I make. Smoked meatloaf has been a huge hit.

One of my favorites is pulled pork!

 Anyway I find NOTHING more enjoyable than spending a summer weekend on my back deck smoking something,tending the garden in the AM, swimming all day hanging with friends and family and watching the reactions when we all eat what I prepared!

   So in closeing, I look forward to spending some time with you all here, picking up so advice and who knows maybe even passing on a little to someone also.

                                                                    THANKS ALOT FOR LISTENING!!!!!

Your a Sheetmetal worker? Any chance Unoin? I ask you this only cause back in 2000/2001 I had the pleasure of working

with a few of the boys out of BatonRouge. They were up here travelling during our Boom. Complete gentlemen from that area.

They were acually living in the home I ended up buying when they went back home,

 Their names were.Pat, Garry, Drew, Timmy, Bee Bee, Chris Picket. Do you know them?

       I do not work for the Union, I work for LSU in Baton Rouge and we used Union supplemental labor for many years a long time.  I'm sorry to say I DO recognize a couple of the names....If  Garry is the same one I'm thinking of, his nick name is "Fuzz" and there is Bee Bee. I couldn't pronounce his real name if I had to, but their only one Bee Bee that thinks he is one bad ass lover/kick boxer….ROFLOL.  I haven't seen Bee Bee since 2005, he was working in California the last I heard from anyone and there is Fuzz, fell off a ladder and broke both legs several years back and had to retire from the Union. He’s working part time as a truck driver the last time I heard from him.  The others I probably know and just don’t recognize, it’s been a while since I have seen a lot of the guys. I changed jobs in 06 and no longer do a lot of sheet metal work. I still have all my equipment at home and still do it as a hobby, but now I’m the Mechanical Estimator for LSU. I get all of the fun of figuring out how the job needs to go and purchasing the materials my guys need for their project.  Most of the guys know me as ShoneyBoy….but my real name is Michael Meek….. Again, Glad to meet another fellow Tin Knocker…..
