    I just joined. Somewhat intimidated, but I want to move my BBQ repertoire to the next level. Have lived in Memphis for 15 years, moving from the Northeast. This moved dramatically changed my approach, techniques and understanding of BBQ. I'm mostly a weekender. I've returned to Weber 26" charcoal kettle after trying an offset and also use Slow N Sear insert after trying Smokenator. My reason for joining this group is to learn and take some risks.

              Welcome to The Pit Hsloves! I'm east of you about 200 miles, just outside of Nashville in Murfreesboro. I've been here about a year and have learned a lot. In fact, I've learned about everything I know about Q from folks here. You will find this to be a top notch place in every respect. Looking forward to hearing about your cooks and seeing your photos.

                      Welcome Hsloves ! One thing you will appreciate here is that you can still take risks, but they're much more calculated than before. There are a ton of trusted recipes, but you also can get 20 different view points from people that have already made the mistake (or had the success) from their personal experience!
