Newbie from Ohio

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm located in NorthEastern Ohio and just picked up a Chargriller Pro this past weekend. I've been pretty hooked on bbq'n and lightly smoking for awhile, but this is the first time I've had a grill where it SHOULD be possible. In the past, I used a 22" weber and indirectly cooked with a water pan in the bottom, but that doesn't really constitute smoking.

I signed up for the eCourse on smoking and hope to learn a thing or two. I looked around this site over the past few days and it seems like a great resource.

Welcome to SMF Rob! This is a great place to learn -- lots of folks with a bunch of experience and knowledge who are generous with what they know.

Good to see another Ohio member -- there are quite a few of us here!

I'm in Akron -- what part of NE Ohio are you from?

Best wishes and happy smokin!

Thanks. We just moved to Kent at the beginning of the year. I have a birthday coming up for my son here in a couple weeks and I'm hoping to give my new grill a little workout.

I saw that quite a few people talk up the Wicked Baked Beans, so I'm going to give those a try too.

Do you know if anyone on here enters any of the BBQ competitions in the area? I'm a long way off from there and don't really have the equipment to do it now, but it's something I would like to get into in the future.

We really like to have newbies here because they can bring in a new propective to how things are done.
