Hey everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Perry P. Perkins, a freelance writer, work-from-home dad, and bbq fan. I'm a Georgia-boy transplanted to the Pacific Northwest, and I do most of my bbq on my offset smoker, whole pigs (and big meals) in my La Caja China Semi Pro, and grilling on my La Cajita China.

Favorite Q: Chopped pork from a whole roast pig.

My (now) 3y/o daughter's first sentence was, "More pork shoulder, please?" LOL

I write novels, articles for hunting & fishing magazines (If you get American Hunter, that was my article on Blacktail Deer in the last issue), and recently, a couple of bbq cookbooks. I also do book coaching and self-publishing assistance for other writers. I also maintain several blogs, and my BBQ blog has been up for about 3 years now.

Two of my friends and I do a lot of cooking for our church, friend and family parties, and local charities. We're in the process of forming our own catering biz, "Burnin' Love BBQ."

No sure what else to say, looking forward to trying some of the great recipes ya'all are posting, sharing a few of my own, and getting to know everyone!

Thanks,

-Perry

First off Welcome Perry to SMF. More Q-view please. You'll like it here for there are alot of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking. Now there are alot of proven recipes for some amazing things here too. So if you need sign up for the E-Course it's free and it will give you the basics of smoking and some good methods to use also. So the next big thing for you to do is go out and get you something to smoke and if you happen to have any questions just post it here and we will be happy to answer them for you.
