    Hey, from central Kentucky

    Hey, I hope everybody's doing well. To say i'm a rookie at bbq is an understatement. I've turned out some good meat and some that was just not edible. Since using this sight i'm on a roll though. haha I had to join because I felt like I was stealing since I was getting so much and not giving anything in return. I first started using this sight last November when I smoked my first Thanksgiving turkey. I followed the recipe to a T and knocked it outta the park. I don't have a lot of experience so I won't be giving advice or weighing in on opinion type topics for the first few years on here. However I do look forward to using ya'lls opinions and advice! haha I'm glad to be here and look forward to the experience.

    Welcome aboard Paco, you're not a "rookie" so much as you are in the "pre-pro stage"! (Everyone starts there)
    We're glad to have you here, and thanks for the support.

    However we can be of assistance, just ask, there are many members here with lots of experience. You will love it here.

    Paco, make your next stop at Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, and be sure to check out the tips post in that channel. These will help you set up your signature, as well as learn the best way to post some nice big pics here. We love bragging pictures, of equipment and food! Enjoy!

        Welcome neighbor, what part of the Bluegrass state are you from? I'm just north of Bowling Green in a little place called Smiths Grove.

            Dumas Walker owned a little joint on Tn/Ky line that was famous for the Slaw Burger. Don't know who Miss Walker was.

            Cool story DWC. Miss Walker was a joke back in the early 90s when the song was famous. Sing the song, you'll get it if you don't already....

            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.

            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
