Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, my name is Donald (BBQman) and I am a new member to this forum.
I have been cooking at the fire house level for the
last 30 years or so. Last year I was asked to join
a competition BBQ team, of course I said yes who wouldn't
We did about 10 competitions this year and finished
9th in brisket (53 teams) and 13th in desert(73 teams).
We have finished in the top 20 in most of our competitions
with the exception of Wildwood NJ where we finisher 27th out
of 32 teams and Dover Delaware where we finished 53rd out of 84 teams.
We use a stumps smoker and a brinkman vertical smoker/grill for competitions.
I make my own rubs and sauces for our competitions
I do the ribs, chicken, and anything but most of the time.
Mike does the brisket and iron chef and John does the pulled pork.
It has been a lot of fun and hard work this year and I can't wait
until April 2008 for our next competition.

Hello, All. I another newcomer to the site and also a newbie in smoking meat. I found this site via google after missing pork BBQ enough here in Michigan to try and make my own. (western KY style pork BBQ is my preference) So I read up here on Jeff's tips and got a simple brinkman (electric, I am lazy) smoker and the first two boston butts did okay.

I bought the rub recipe here since this site was so helpful so I will try that in a few weeks.
