Hi all! My name is Kyle and I am from Memphis, TN. I am new to this forum but not new to BBQ.

My wife and I have been judging on the Memphis in May circuit for 6 years now. We judge 10+ contests a year, so I guess you could say we know good when we taste it. We are also co-organizing the Oxford's Town BBQ Throwdown in Oxford, MS on September 28th and 29th. It is our inaugural year so wish us luck and if you are nearby come and see us.

We have tons of good BBQ joints in Memphis, but I personally think commercial BBQ can't touch competition BBQ. That's also why we started cooking ourselves. We have a Backwoods Smoker - Party Size and are constantly experimenting.

Good to meet everyone and look forward to all kinds of advice.
Let me be the first to welcome you to SMF, your knowlege and experience will be great to all of us, plus maybe we can help out as well from time to time!!!!!! there is no better place for us thin blue smoke kinds!!!!
Welcome aboard the SMF!

Lots of good folks here, you'll love it ...........
Welcome aboard the SMF! Sounds like you will fit right in here. I agree, the commercial joints are not even close to competition or even home made "Q". I look forward to your posts!
Hello boardjocky and welcome to the SMF, which is the best sight on the net. My favorite ribs are Memphis dry rub style, no sauce needed. Enjoy the good folks here, they have plenty of great ideas.
Thanks guys. I appreciate the hospitality. As far as judging My wife and I are on the organizational team for the event. I am over everything that happens in the rib division - 110 teams, my wife is over the shoulder division - 75 teams, therefore we can't judge it. Thanks again for the love though and I am willing to share any knowledge, however minimal I can. Ha!
