Smoking in the Chicago burbs

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

Just wanted to introduce myself.

 

My name is Brian, I grew up in small town rural Iowa. I am an avid outdoorsmen that enjoys Hunting and Fishing along with various other outdoor activities. I now live in St. Charles, Illinois.

 

I started to become interested in smoking/bbqing while living in Houston, Texas for three years. I fell in love with brisket, sausage, ribs etc. You name it and I enjoy it hahaha.

 

bbqing/smoking is not very common where I grew up so I was never exposed to it as a youngster, it is just in the last couple years it has piqued my interest.

 

Long story short, I bought a Wood Hollow gas smoker with a gift card from Christmas. I recently assembled it and have had a couple times to use it. I am certainly a novice but have seen enough people do it first hand and on TV to have a good idea of what to do.

 

Well I look forward to talking with you all.

Thanks

 

 

Below you will also get to meet my smoking/qing sidekick Anna(AKA my bird dog).
