My name is Gary, I live in the greater Pittsburgh, PA area. (I'm originally from Southern California!). I have and amazing wife, 5 kids, 2 grand kids, and 2 dogs - never a dull moment around here!
I am new to this whole smoking meat thing! I have always loved BBQ and have been grilling all of my life. (I know grilling isn't technically BBQ - but I love both none the less!)
Smoking however, I'm finding is a whole new adventure!
Last Christmas, my folks and in-laws chipped in and bought me a 22" Weber Smokey Mountain smoker. In the past 10 months I have had some successes and failures! (my smoked pork tenderloin and chicken quarters were a bust!)
But I've had some moderate success with Pork Butt and Baby Back Ribs. I'm really looking forward to tackling a brisket one of these days!
Happy to be here! Hope to learn a lot and share my experiences with the group!
