I saw this thread and got excited. Then i noticed no one is posting here. Hopefully that will change. Hope to start a WV network.
Mountain BBQ -
I live in Texas currently. Went to WVU back in the mid-to-late 1960's and was living in Beckley at the time. Married a good ol' WV gal and we lived in the Elkview area (Pinch, WV actually) until my job moved us to Texas. Did a lot of muskie (river) fishing on Elk River and Little Kanawha River.
I have a 22.5" WSM and a Brinkman smoker. Been smoking now for about 6 years and love it. I just retired and will be cooking more now.
Great to hear from some WV smokers. I'm from the Huntington area, and really prefer using my homemade UDS. I recently started smoking for small get togethers, and have had really good feed back. I was curious and entered a contest to see where I stood, but realized a one man team is really a daunting task. I did finish 12th out of 83 teams in my pork which made me some what happy. Now I just want to do another one with help, and see how I do.
