    Hello everyone, I'm just starting to get into smoking meats and so far this site has proven to be a great resource.  I have been successful so far with ribs and chicken quarters, and now I'm looking to move on to bigger and better meats.  I have already been made an honorary member of the  Big Gravy BBQ team out of Victoria, TX due mostly in part to a friend and my job (US Navy) and I hope to live up to their award winning standards.
