I live in Atlanta, Georgia but am originally from the Memphis metro area. I suppose I have pork BBQ "in the blood". Have fond memories of the great BBQ joints around Memphis, and get homesick from time to time . . . .

So, now I am trying to perfect my own methods. I smoke primarily with a "Green Egg" ceramic smoker, and it does a nice job of controlling temperature.

Looking forward to sharing techniques with the forum.

welcome chip,

if your like me you will be learning a lot on these forums and checking out some recipes that will make you drool.

I lived for about 6 years in the Metro Atlanta area, primarily in Norcross and Lilburn in Gwinnett co. Had a lot of trouble adapting to the difference in sauce between the Arkansas/Louisiana delta area where I always ate BBQ and the sauce they used in Georgia. Mine was bold and spicy and theirs was very light and hardly any tomato base

anyway welcome and if i can help with anything just let me know.
