Hello, hate being the new guy but I have been enjoying reading this site and need to get better cooking barbecue so decided to join. I'm from North Texas but have been displaced west where the trees are few and the dust storms are plentiful. Could say where I am but that's too easy, lets just say there are lots of pump jacks around here. Coming from Cowtown I'm use to good barbecue, but out here the barbecue places are few and far between. I've made going on barbecue trips one of my hobbies the past few years but get to craving barbecue bad in between them. If I can learn to cook a brisket I can save a lot of trips to Central Texas! Look forward to getting to know ya'll better.
