Hello from East Tennessee

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone.  My name is Jeff, and I currently live in Knoxville, Tennessee.  I grew up on the Tennessee / Kentucky state line on the west side of Tennessee and have been all over most of the South as well as a 5 year stretch in Texas.  I've always loved BBQ, and getting a chance to try everything from Texas brisket to West KY BBQ mutton has been a great experience.  I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but while my wife and I shop for a house, we live in a place that I can't have a gas or charcoal grill.  I have been debating for about a year about buying an electric smoker, so any feedback on those would be much appreciated.


In the meantime, I spend a lot of time working on my own seasonings and rubs, and Sunday I took my first stab at making my own sausage.  I look forward to learning what I can from everyone.  It looks like a great forum.

Thanks, folks.  I've read over all the rules and am ready to go.  As for the picture request, here's my first stab at sausage.  I'm a big fan of chorizo and since I wasn't planning to smoke this batch, I thought that was a good start.
