    Texan in SoCal

    Hey All... Been using AmazingRibs for a little while now and finally took the step of joining. I have been smoking meat for about 15 years now, although I really started taking it seriously about 5 years back. Now using a CampChef Pellet Smoker which I purchased primarily based on the review here on AmazingRibs. Love that thing. Also still have my old piece of crap MasterBuilt Vertical propane smoker that still works great for my homemade sausage and making my own bacon. If I had only one cook left in my life, it would have to be brisket using pecan wood. I will smoke anything and love ribs, pulled pork, chicken, even silly California tri-tip, but brisket is the definition of BBQ

    I also am a chili cook and compete in a few chili cookoffs a year. Won one last April at the TexasExes Chili Cookoff here in LA.
    I am originally from the great state of Texas, although I have not lived there in about 25 years. I have now lived in the Los Angeles area for about 15 years where I am a software engineer. I'm an avid baseball fan and nothing is better than watching a Cubs game, drinking a beer, and watching my smoker.

    I really look forward to seeing and sharing recipes and techniques on here and seeing what everyone is up to.

    Welcome and thanks for the support. I have been in east Texas since 2001. Originally from southwest Louisiana.

    I am certain it takes quite a bit of alcohol to "enjoy" watching the Cubs.

            John, you must be an Aggie or a Sooner to think that inverting that would bother any stalwart Longhorn. Although, having been born a Jayhawk, I can't believe they'd let either into Kansas or Missouri.

              Missed it, Arkansas. If that doesn't bother you, I was in 2nd grade when you graduated, i'm sure a LOT has changed

            Welcome! Funny, my signature says 'Texan in Socal' as well. Like you, I've been out here quite awhile, about 18 years but I still go back one or twice a year to see family.
