Hello from North Central Illinois

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,


I'm excited to have just joined this forum and am really looking forward to learning from all of your expertise!  I'm born and raised in the Midwest and have always enjoyed cooking (and eating) some good BBQ.  Over the past few years, my interest has continued to grow, and I have begun to take it even more seriously.  I guessing i'm probably not the only one in this group who has spent late evenings watching Youtube videos and reading articles about how to perfect my BBQ!  I also don't mind admitting to this group that I spend a lot of time thinking about BBQ over the course of a!


Recently, my father and I purchased a large Big Green Egg and have been extremely pleased with the quality of BBQ we've been getting from it so far. We've never owned any kind of smoker grill before, so it has been quite the treat for our taste buds to be able to easily grill up some delicious grub. 


Anyway, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself.   I look forward to being a member of this forum and chatting with you all!


Take care,

Howdy Cumo!


welcome1.gif to the SMF, the best BBQ site on the web.  Whatever you need to know about the fine art of BBQ you can find it right here, from recipes to technical knowledge.


One thing you need to know about us is that we like to see pictures of your creations and your gear.  We call it Q-View and its basically the Rules.gif!!!


So, don't just talk about your food, show it!  Otherwise you may get a gentle reminder, like this...

Good Luck and Get Smokin'
