Hi-new member from Chicago, IL

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

Glad to have joined up. I've been smoking for a couple of years, eating bbq for quite a few more. I'm pretty hooked on it. I have a chargriller and enjoy it very much. Favorites are ribs and brisket, and I must say I might not care too much for bbq chicken, a hotter, smoke-roast on chicken suits me better.
Last fall I took a course and became a KCBS judge, but winter was settling in and it became the end of the contest season around here so I have yet to judge a real contest.
I am originally from Wisconsin and go up there regularly to visit family and kick back with my smoker and do some fishing.

Looking forward to being part of this forum!

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.
