Hello, My name is Jeff and I am from a small town in south central Iowa. I have been looking at this forum from the outside for several months and I finally got in the game. This seems to be the best forum on the web. There is a bunch of information on here and plenty of good people to go with it. A little bit about my experience: I would say I'm somewhere between a Rookie and a novice. I have smoked quite a bit of porkloin and chicken and have been experimenting with pulled pork with good results so far. (At least that's what my friends say, but they aren't picky.) I'm going to try some baby backs this weekend for the holiday. I hope to be talking with everyone soon. Everyone have a good safe 4th of July.
