I just wanted to say "hey" or "howdy" to my fellow Texans. My wife and I have been married for 16 years and we lived Fort Worth for 13 years. Last August, we moved to Hurst (just a few miles away). We have our own band and are involved with our church, on top of my regular job. We also have three kids (13, 12, and 9), all of whom are hard core carnivores and love smoked meat. In fact, our 12 year old actually asked me to smoke her a full brisket (all for her) her birthday!!
My favorite BBQ restaurant so far is Louie Mueller's in Taylor. I've been smoking (meat) for about 12 years now and am always looking for ways to improve. As far as the sauce vs. no sauce issue, I tend to prefer by BBQ without sauce. At least, I like to see what the "artist" intended before deciding if it needs any embellishment. But there are no hard feelings for any hard core sauce people here.
I'm looking forward to meeting some new folks here and learning some things to improve my BBQ. And if I can offer any helpful insight, I'll be glad to do so as well. Well, that's all for now...
