Howdy folks. My name's Ricc, and I'm from Nitro, WV. I'm a computer geek by day, and a musician at night, but I'm always a happily married father of 4. I've been BBQ'n seriously for about 10 years now. Usually it's for friends and family, but occasionally I get asked to for parties, wedding receptions, etc. For the moment the BBQ area of our back deck is populated by a couple Weber kettle grills and a hand-me-down chimney smoker of unknown origin, but I have a sneaking suspicion Christmas is going to change that. If not, I'll be upgrading sometime before next summer. Glad to be part of the group, as I've been reading around for a couple weeks now.
You're telling the truth. I have my big one for regular grilling duties, and a smaller tabletop one I use for seafood. Never disappointed.
  Good afternoon and welcome to the forum, from a cold and rainy day here in East Texas, and the best site on the web. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about everything.

Thank you sir. Love me some Texas. Have a few friends there (one that taught me a ton about BBQ). This forum is a lot cooler than some others I've checked out. Hope I can help keep it awesome.
I'm a Weber Kettle lifer. I do my ribs the same way you do in my smoker. I don't have room to lay them down. I also have to separate my briskets into point/flat for the same reason. It taught me it's smart to do that. I'll throw up some pics. Thanks for the welcome in. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
