    Howdy all,

    I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Brian and I live in Austin, Texas. I am new to smoking and hope to use this site as a crutch in my learning process. I am not a true Texan so I was never raised around good BBQ. I look forward to exploring this site more.

    Welcome aboard Brian.

    I'm sure you'll find out all you need to know to be up and smoking in no time.

    Don't worry you don't have to be a native Texan to run a smoker. The Texans just copied the Mexicans who copied the cajuns.:>)

    Now that you ARE in Texas 8) ... you're surrounded by BBQ contests just about every weekend, good authenic BBQ joints (to the south), and bunches of folks that own their own rigs (every other block [​IMG] ).

    And now that you've found this forum and good number of folks who are willing to help you, you should be able to produce some good BBQ of your own in no time. :D

    Welcome Brian, and welcome to the SMF. Don't worry the Texans make good que, so do the cajuns and the mexicans--but us here in Missouri(you know the Show-ME State) just set back and let them pave the way, but now everyone tuns to us for Advice. Strange isn't it???
