    Hello from Pittsburgh!

    Hey All,

    This is an apply named *amazing* site, and i'm excited to be a part of the club. Already I've gotten my money's worth with the seminars and information.

    A little about me:

    I'm a graduate of Pittsburgh's Culinary Institute (Le Cordon Bleu), and have worked everywhere from a AAA 5 Diamond Restaurant, to wedding catering and ala carte. Currently I work an office job during the week, but I've gotten barbecue fever over the past year.

    I've been having a lot of fun trying different things with ribs, brisket, etc., and look forward to interacting with you all!

      Welcome to the Pit! It is great fun.What are you cooking on? I cook on a BGE and when visiting my son a 26" Weber Kettle. At my son-in-law's it is a Joe Jr. I have the fever, too.

        Right now i have a Masterbuilt Electric (i know, i know!). I'm either going to be getting a weber 22", and/or converting a 55 gallon drum into a horizontal smoker setup, now that i have the charcoal bug in me.

      Welcome cdarv! We're glad you're here. Why did you transition from restaurant to office work?

        Hey thanks! I'm a big fan of the SnS concept by the way. i might be getting a setup for it soon with a weber 22" (although i should probably wait until after winter)!

        As for the industry switch, i actually still do cater on the weekends, but i had a very good opportunity to make an industry switch (pays the bills, heh). One day I may go back into cooking as a business owner, but that will probably be after i pay down the rest of these school loans!
