Hey everyone, my name is Bruce B and I live in Utica, MI. I have been doing BBQ for the past 5 years, I have two WSM's, a Weber 22 1/2 Kettle and the obligatory Weber gasser, and I am on a KCBS competition team with 2 guys from Ohio, our team name is North Coast BBQ Society, we did 3 comps last year and cashed in all 3, No GC' or RGC's yet but several top 5's and top 10's in individual categories.

On a personal note I am 53 YOA and I am a retired police officer, retired in 2003 after 27 years on the department, the last 11 as Chief. Married with one daughter; I BBQ, play golf, swim in my pool and keep the lawn looking "half-way" decent.

Looking forward to sharing with all of you.

Bruce so glad you are here. We needed an other person from Michigan. I believe with all those from Michigan we need to relocate the capital of BBQ to Michigan!

Welcome aboard, and thanks for your service in protecting and serving
