    Hello from Northern Virginia

    Hello from Northern Virginia, in the sprawling suburbs of Washington, DC. I'm originally from Iowa, I spent a number of years in Texas, and I've been fortunate to live all over the world.

    While I have grilled for a long time, and bought my first smoker in 2007 (mostly doing ribs), I didn't get serious about barbecue until I moved back here in 2013. I started with a WSM, and still use it occasionally, but recently I have mainly been cooking on my PBC. I've also been experimenting with sous vide meats. I tend to favor spicier rubs and sauces.

    Of the big four BBQ meats, I'm strongest in pork butt and ribs, decent with brisket, and weakest with chicken. I took a competition BBQ class a few weeks ago, but I'm not quite ready to take that plunge. Maybe someday...

    Other interests include photography, meteorology, brewing (beer, kombucha, etc.), and eating.

    Happy to be here.

                              Welcome Brentc in North Virginia, from Charles, aka Storlok, aka Mississippi smokin' fool, from North Mississippi. I use a WSM myself, and while I consider myself weak, or new to all of it, somehow, all the meat that I smoke gets devoured...so guess it's all good!
