Hey all I am Jeremy from Clayton, NC. I am a transplant from NY who was shown the wonderful ways of BBQ. One day I decided that I wanted to make this stuff for myself and bought a Smokin' Pro charcoal smoker. It is a great piece of equipment to start, but I am thinking about getting a gas smoker to maintain better heat. As far as my experience goes, I guess I am still a Novice. I have doing this off and on for about 1 1/2 now and have only dabbled in Butts and Ribs. That's what makes me and the family happy though so if it ain't broke then don't fix it. The biggest complement I ever received was from a thoroughbred southerner who once tell me that the pull pork I made was the best they ever had! I personally do not use the foil method for my butts like I have seen described on here but I may try that tomorrow for my first annual BBQ party (with many more to come!). I look forward to chatting with you all in the future!
