Hi all! My name is Kyle and I am from Memphis, TN. I am new to this forum but not new to BBQ.
My wife and I have been judging on the Memphis in May circuit for 6 years now. We judge 10+ contests a year, so I guess you could say we know good when we taste it. We are also co-organizing the Oxford's Town BBQ Throwdown in Oxford, MS on September 28th and 29th. It is our inaugural year so wish us luck and if you are nearby come and see us.
We have tons of good BBQ joints in Memphis, but I personally think commercial BBQ can't touch competition BBQ. That's also why we started cooking ourselves. We have a Backwoods Smoker - Party Size and are constantly experimenting.
Good to meet everyone and look forward to all kinds of advice.
