    Hi guys and gals. I am a long time lurker on this site...I can't even say how many great tips and tricks I have discovered in this forum over the years. I decided to join because I am thinking of taking this hobby to the next level, but that will be the topic of another thread. About me- raised in Waterbury CT in an Italian family that loved to cook! Dont they all.

    I paid my way through college cooking at various restaurants up by ECSU, mostly steakhouses/fine food, so I have some professional experience. I moved down to NC when I was 25. I remember my very first real NC pulled pork sandwich at a little roadside stand. Since then I have been hooked.

    I moved back to CT several years ago and I have been an avid backyard smoker for the last 20 years. I do all of the standards and also mess around with new recipes all the time. I would say I am a fairly advanced BBQer- although not at the level of your competition guys out there I am sure. I have a bunch of grills/smokers. But I split my time mostly between an XL Big Green Egg (I resisted these things for years, but now I love them) and a heavily modded cheap offset smoker. I may be building a cabinet style with one of my neighbors for a fun project.

    Anyways, I wanted to introduce myself since I plan on becoming really active on this board.
