Hey Y'all!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself.

I was a city girl my whole life up until 3 years ago, when I moved to the Appalachian mountain region in the tri-state area of NC/TN/GA where I bought a farm.

I raise Black Angus, Berskshires, Nubians and have a collection of Buff Orpingtons and several hives. My beloved Kangal and Anatolian livestock guardian dogs protect the 'family' and I find myself working harder than I ever have in my life lol.

I recently bought a BGE as it get close to piggy heaven around here so that I could smoke various things. I have a chef background and my philosophy has always been if someone can do something with food, I can do it better.

So, I'm about to branch out further into the smoking world, and want to thank everyone here for taking the time to compile a vast array of knowledge and experience. When I was researching smoking, I came across y'alls forum and have been reading voraciously ever since. That has produced a few questions, so here I am.

Anyway, that's a little about me, and I look forward to getting to know everyone better.

Welcome Shad! I recently moved to south ga from Blairsville, GA. I miss the mountains! I too have chickens and fresh eggs, yummmmmmm. When I was in Blairsville I raised black Angus and Nubians, love those critters and I'm thinking about getting more. You are definitely at the right place to learn about smoking! I'm a newbie and the folks here are just awesome!

Oh how kewl, Squirrel. I'm in Blue Ridge.

Small world, eh?

Originally from Miami, so the learning curve has been steep but I'm very blessed to be here, and yes, it's hard to leave these mountains.
