Hello fellow meat maniacs!
Just joined the group today and I am looking forward to being a part of the family. I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself. I live in the great Pacific Northwest, but am actually a transplant here. My wife and I have lived in Washington State (Cowlitz County) for 23 years. We have three kids. Every one of us is a meat fanatic. Prior to moving to Washington, I lived in Georgia and South Carolina. Yes, I am a southern boy through and through. I love my mama, my country and my food.
I have owned a grill ever since I was a teenager. I use them so much, we go through a grill about every three years...no matter how well I clean and take care of them.
A few years ago, my wife bought me an offset smoker. I immediately got hooked. I started making some of the best food and had a heck of a fun time in the process. But, as you all know, using a stick burner takes a constant eye...and sometimes it feels like a little too much work.
So...today...after 4 months of researching, asking around, reading forums and watching videos on You Tube...I did it. I purchased my first pellet grill smoker! As of a few hours ago, I am now the proud owner of a brand new Rec Tec! I am so pumped! It should arrive in about a week and a half. Yesterday, my wife and I special ordered 12 racks of ribs through Zaycon. So in a couple of weeks, I should have the smoker running low and slow and some fantastic baby backs waiting to melt in my mouth! I will be sure to take some pics as the magic happens.
See you soon!
