Hi everyone. I'm a Kansas City native living in Alabama. I gotta be honest, I like it here, but I really miss being in one of the BBQ Meccas of the U.S. I'm no pitmaster, but I know my way around a grill and smoker. I used to do small-time county competition in the KC area, but haven't in a long time. Moved to South Carolina in 2008 and got certified to be a SCBA judge down there. Moved to Alabama a couple years later. Came here through the Pit Barrel Cooker thread - just got mine on Friday, doing my first smoke tomorrow. My current rigs are the PBC, a Masterbuilt Electric (long story, got it for free), and my trusty Weber kettle.
