    New Member from Powder Springs, GA

    Hello all from Georgia. I have been cooking since 12 yrs old and Qing since the 60's. Since I have found AR my skills have really elevated and I am so proud of my results. I tell everyone that BBQ's to go to AR if they want to be "all they can be in BBQ". I have started to get some really great results smoking pork buts and ribs. My wife doesn't want to go out anymore as home is the place to get the best "Q". We call our modest home "The Reade Ranch" and tell our friends also.

    Welcome Marauderer! Great story, and thanks for the shout out to AR. I agree, we had the opportunity to go to a fairly well known BBQ place, a "Famous...." one if you know what I mean. My friends told me theirs is nowhere near as good as mine so let's just eat at my place. It was a compliment, as long as everyone buys their own meat I guess. Then I have no problem doing it up. If you can ever get your hands on some peach wood, it's one of my favorites to use when Qing. Great job filling out your signature by the way!

      Thanks Aaron for the kind words. I am still learning the AR format and do not see sigs posted. I will go back into my account and see if I can find the right thing.

        Yours is there, it just doesn't post to each of your comments like traditional forums boards. Under your picture you'll see a green dot, which means you're online. Right next to that is a little fountain pen looking icon. This is your signature icon, hover your mouse over it and it will pop up. Click it and it goes away. This is setup this way so as not to clog up the forum posts. If a user doesn't have the pen tip icon they have no signature set up.

            Maurauderer - Welcome to AR!

            I know just the thing which might get you and your wife out and ya'll to have a GREAT time. Get a couple of guys that you like to hang out with your wives together and ya'll pick a night to attend a Chastain Park concert. Then throw down on some Q production, wrap it in foil, put it in a cooler. Pack the pic nic basket and proceed to have a great time with friends, Q, music and beverages. Obviously this Fall season will be cooler, but I have also had a fantastic hot humid summer night or two at Chastain in partying in Hot 'lanta. Just bring plenty of ice for your choice of beverages.

                Thank Dave, I have been around the block a few times and as some would say this isn't my first Rodeo. I hope to continue learning on this site and will try to be a contributor also

                    Michael, Thanks for the suggestion. We have been to Chastain several times with some really great concerts and a couple of poor experiences. As you know there are people out there that have no respect for others and it is all about them. After the second concert that was ruined by inconsiderate people we have refrained from partaking at Chastain. Sad as it is I am not as youthful as I use to be but my temperament hasn't aged well at times. So we tend to hand out at the "Reade Ranch" and take in a couple of shows at the "Fox Theater" or watch a show on the 65" Plasma.

                      Maurauderer - Yea I understand your point of view explicitly. My mellow factor isn't always in place when it comes to rude public displays of inconsideration either. I guess I was just reliving some rather fond memories of Chastain esp. when I was fortunate to have some friends invite me to their catered tables in the up front area. I do remember that parking for Chastain S _ _ ked, with some long walks at times. You also really bring to mind one of my all time favorite theaters - The Fox. Thanks for the good memories.

                      Nice to have your participation with all the good folks who hag out here.

                        I have only been here a couple of days and already I can tell there is something different (good) about this group.

                        And Aaron if I felt differently than that I would not air it for everyone to see. You would get a PM with what I idendified as the proble and three different ways it could be fixed. But alas, that is just me.

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
