What's up, Everyone?
Just wanted to say hey and introduce myself. I've been cooking all sorts of stuff on my Weber charcoal kettle for about 7-8 years. I like to experiment quite a bit and try different things. This includes cooking methods. This year I finally mastered my own dry rub for chicken. Last week, my brother gave me a Charcoal Brinkmann Smoke & Grill. I haven't used it yet. I don't know how to use it. So, I'm here to learn. I've been thinking about starting with a Turkey and will probably make the attempt this Saturday. Good to be here.

Happy you found us, Brett!

You'll find this to be the friendliest and most informative spot on the 'net. Any and all questions are welcome and if you own a digital camera we really love "food porn".

So, c'mon in, read through the forums you are interested in and post away!

BTW! North Shore area, huh? My old stomping grounds in younger days (daze)!

Cheers!

Wow, another local from Beantown....very cool! I'm actually in Medford and new to the whole smoking thing myself. I don't think there are too many of us here in this part of the woods, Brett.

I have the same exact equipment as you, we should definitely exchange some recipes as we learn and maybe one day get together and smoke for an entire weekend.

you also mentioned baseball in winter: my view is that the two greatest pass times in the world are baseball and bbq. I had the great pleasure of seeing a game in Fenway last summer....what an experience.

Welcome and let's learn qing together.

Awesome. I'm up for that. Nothing better than eating good food all weekend long.

Couldn't agree more. RE Fenway: I love going to the park when I can get tickets. Used to be we'd take the train in an hour before game time and get tix at the box office. Now every game is sold out the day they go on sale. It is one of the best baseball experiences you can get though.

Thanks for the very warm welcome everyone. I plan to sign up for the eCourse and I'll definitely get to reading as much of the forums as possible. Hopefully, I'll be able to contribute some useful info areound here someday.
