    Greetings from Canada

    Hi everyone! My name is Chris and I hail from the Regina, Canada. BTW it's pronounced REE-GYE-NAH - we affectionately refer to it as "The City that Rhymes with Fun!"

    I've been a passionate outdoor cooker for years now. I've seen my share of crappy gas grills and cheaply built pellet poopers. I'm currently cooking on a Pitmaker BBQ Safe, an old Weber Performer kettle, a Napoleon PrestigePro natural gasser, and a brand spanking new Kamado Joe Classic. I like to tell people that my hobby is meat!

    Southern style barbecue is a relatively new thing here on the Canadian prairies, becoming in popular in the past five years or so. I didn't have the luxury of learning how to cook low and slow from my dad or my grandfather. I'm completely self taught and owe a great deal of thanks to web sites like Amazing Ribs for helping me understand the basics.

    I live in cattle country so beef is king in these parts and therefore it's my favourite meat to cook. Having said that my favourite food in the world is smoke roasted hot chicken wings. When I fired up my Kamado Joe for the first time last week chicken wings were the first thing I cooked and man - the KJ is a MACHINE! Love it!

    Looking forward to making some friends, engaging in some discussions, but most of all learning from all of you. You can't imagine how much it helps others when you share your experiences and insight.

          Welcome to the Pit! Like you BBQ is my hobby. I lived in pork country in Louisiana, but have just moved to beef country in Texas. I cook on a Big Green Egg, and I love chicken wings. I cook them with salt and black pepper only over 350 direct heat at the felt line for about 30 minutes until they are crispy, crispy. Have fun in the Pit. It is a great place to learn.

                    I take note of this because I grew up 10 miles South of the Line in NC ND (Rolla) we had to keep an eye out for Canadians they might have been relatives? Eat Well and Prosper! From Fargo ND, Dan


                      Thanks everyone for the kind words and warm wishes. Danjohnston949 your comment about watching out for Canadians made me laugh. TGIF - can't wait to play with some fire this weekend!
