Greetings from GA

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

I used to be a member here under the tag "prplptcrzr" but was MIA for a while. I'm back, and am so impressed with how this forum site has evolved. Great job, Jeff and administrators!

I smoke meat for fun (and for nourishment!) but would like to venture out into the world of amateur bbq competition. I believe I can smoke a good product and would like to stat finding places like local churches, clubs, etc that may hold small competitions - don't know if I'm quite ready to compete with the Myron Mixon's of the bbq world at this time!

I use an Oklahoma Joe (or I call it "Okie Joe") wood/charcoal smoker and I love it. I've had her for about 5-6 years now and she's going strong. She's cast iron and starting to show some rust, so I'm going to look around the forums to see if anyone's posted any threads regarding care and restoration of cast iron smokers, if any. I can do great ribs, chicken, London broil and butts, but I have yet to do a beef brisket.

Basically, I'm here to have fun, get to know some of you, swap recipes and I will be asking you seasoned (no pun) pros some questions about techniques and what have you. Glad to be back and by all means, drop me a note to say hello and let's get to smokin some meat!

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

Welcome back, Sam. Always good to see fellow Georgians here.

I am working with a local group that will be sponsoring a comp in Hazlehurst on May 14-15. It will be sanctioned by GA BBQ Association. There is the GBA division and we will also have a backyard division for ribs, chicken & dessert. We are giving out over $5000 in cash prizes. I am working on a website for the event & it should be up in a couple of days. If you (or anyone else) is interested, the event & entry from is posted on the GBA website -- www.bbqga.com
