Hello All,

My name is Herb and I was referred by my friend Mike (a.k.a. mikey2gunz) and this is really a great forum.

I fell in love with BBQ back when I was a kitchen manager for Red Hot & Blue BBQ franchise in 2000. I was a corporate trainer - opening two other stores in Iowa and then the franchisee decided to pull out and close all their stores in our state. Since then, I've always been on the search for good tasting "Q" and my personal friends have also developed a love for smoked meat. Often times we will travel far a wide to sample various styles of BBQ.

So here I am - ready to explore all areas in the production and consumption of this wonderful thing we call BBQ.

I work full-time at a utility company and recently obtained a part-time position working the pit at Dickey's BBQ Restaurants (Texas Pit BBQ). I'm doing this for experience and my general craving for BBQ. Oh, and the extra money will help me further my BBQ cause. ;-)

Look forward to meating new people here. :-)

as soon as i figure out the smoker, i'll have him out for a meal...until then, he's gotta keep searching! we've an ongoing argument on what kinda meat rub belongs! he's a good guy so give him a nice SMF welcome!!!

Seeing the moniker "HerbieQ", I envision a white VW bug with the #51 on the doors and hood converted to smoker.

Herb, glad that Mike is a good enough friend to steer you to this great site. I know you'll make visiting SMF at least a daily occurrence (if not more).

Glad to see there is somebody out there that is willing to criticize the Movie Critics. Can't believe the number of times I've left a movie that was a downright waste of money thinking to meself "What the heck was that critic thinking??" or wondering if we even watched the same movie.

Glad your here and Enjoy!!

That's very creative - I like it! People might think my car is overheating, but really I am preparing for some overeating. :-)

Yes - very cool site!

I know the feeling. Yes - it feels good when I give praise to a critic that nailed a really good review - or lash out at someone who wrote rediculous commentary. It's all in good fun, though.

Herb
