    Long time lurker of the site but finally took the time to join. My name is Jarren and I am a mid twenties Sous Chef from Joplin, Missouri. My dad and I have competed in KCBS BBQ for quite some time now including cooking in the American Royal Open over 8 times, so I practically grew up in the smoke. We now compete in competitive chili competitions nation wide with the CASI organizatione. I being classically trained also have a interest in charcuterie with sausages and cheese and the like. Lets see the equipment I currently have is a 22.5 Silver Touch Webber, a MasterForge Double Door Gasser, and an Outdoor Gourmet 4-burner Gas Grill. My father has a 4 rack rotisserie Kinfisher Kooker, 2 Barrel Smokers (one offset, one straight), 2 brinkman Mr. Smokers(Dont Use Much), and a Brinkman Vertical with an offset smoke box. We are also just now finishing up our 2 UDS this week. Thats all I got for now. Any questions feel free to ask.

    [​IMG]  to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us!

    If you didn't read the Terms of Service notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums. Rule #11......"Off Site Links are not allowed here at SMF" is something new. There are other simple guidelines for all of us to remember as we interact here.

    If you need any help roaming around here in SMF....just give me a shout.  Happy to help any time!
