    Hi guys.  I've been lurking around the forum for a couple weeks now and was encouraged to introduce myself.

    I have a large Big Green Egg, had it for about 6 years.  I love to cook and smoke, but am by no means an expert.  I just got a BBQ Guru for Christmas.

    My experience is pretty much limited to: Pork shoulder, brisket, ribs, and steaks.  I've never made my own rub, though I have tried making my own BBQ sauce. 

    Before I started reading on this forum, I'd never heard of the 3-2-1, nor the "40 to 140 in 4" rule, or anything like that.  So, I definitely have a lot to learn. Hopefully I'll have some better smokes along the way.

    Thanks so much.  I've already posted a picture in my "ribs" thread, so it looks like I'm OK with that part. 

    Looks like I'll have a fun time over here.
