    Hello from West Texas

    Been a member for about a year or so. I figured it was about time I came out of the shadows. 58 years of trial and error ( mostly error) and I’ve just about achieved mediocre. I’ve owned cheap equipment and no so cheap equipment for grilling and smoking. Current setup is a redesigned outdoor kitchen I rebuilt myself about 2 years ago. A full year of gnashing teeth and watching YouTube videos and about 1 month to build , partial tear down and rebuild.
    Current setup,is XL Big Green Egg, 42” Blaze 5 burner grill with Blaze Power Burner. Warming drawers, storage, sink and bar. Currently evaluating table top pizza ovens.
    I’ve begun experimenting with fruit based bbq sauces. Cherry, Blackberry ...adding some mild kick with hatch peppers and maybe some cayenne.
    I need a good set of knives still. I’m registered for the Meat-Up so I’m hoping there might be some knife vendors there. Tried my first Sous Vide steaks with a sear ending this past weekend. Worth the small effort for sure.
    Beverage of choice is beer, IPA’s and some stouts. I’ve been known to travel a long ways for a beer release. Dechutes in Portland, OR for Abyss and Santa Rosa, CA for a 12 hour wait in the rain for Pliney the Elder ( Common sense level = very low).
    I smoke ribs (Wife is from Memphis so I have standards that must be met), pork butt and brisket.
    most unique thing I’ve smoked is Nacho Dip this past year and it was rocking.
    Love to discuss/help with any of the above.

                        Welcome to the speaking side of the Pit. I assume we can now blame you for the Meat Up being canceled for this year.

                          Welcome to the posting side. Nice setup you have there. We really enjoy some fruit based rubs on certain proteins too. We love our blueberry rub on chicken for instance. Keep us in the loop on any new creations.

                              Wow, great set up. You’ll have fun here.
                              By the way, most of the time I melt the ingredients of the nacho dip. Easier to get it on chips. I learned that from Panhead John.

                                Panhead John Well, it was an attempt at improving which was obviously too subtle or not subtle enough. His pic of the big tub of nacho dip wasn’t melted (pre-smoked) and all in chunks and pieces. Sorry. I’ll go straight for slapstick next time.
