Hello all my name is Darrick and I love great BBQ. I am currently living in Iowa as I am in the US Army and stationed at Rock Island Arsenal. It is some beautiful country out this way but unfortunately I have yet to find some really good BBQ. I am from Alabama (Roll Tide) and have been eating great tasting BBQ all my life. I just recently decided to get heavy into smoking but decided to start out small. I purchased a MES yesterday and seasoned it last night. Put on a 7lb Boston Butt today and hopefully it will turn out ok. Look forward to learning from all of you. Thanks for having me.
