    Greetings for Port Washington, WI

    Name: Curling Dog
    Likes: the sport of Curling, craft beer (Belgium Dubbel's, Tripel's, Quads, mainly), slow smoking large clods of meat, babying babybacks and general geeking out on grilling meat, grill equipment and trying new recipes.
    Favorite rub: Meatheads Memphis Dust (slightly modified)
    Favorite sauce: Sweet Baby Ray's Hot and Spicy
    Grill History: like most, An 18" Weber Kettle was my first grill. Purchased back in 1986, it's followed me ever since and i still use it to this day. Like most back yard cooks, i take pride and great pleasure in grilling up for for friends and loved ones. I've never entered a BBQ competition. I've never judged a BBQ competition. I stumbled across the AR website while researching a better way to cook big clods of meat. My previous attempts were only met with minimal success... i suffered from inadequate smoking equipment. I had cobbled together a Brinkman bullet purchased at a flea market for $10, with a used Weber Smokey Joe for a heat source. I also modified the Brinkman to control the exhaust by lining the rim with oven gasket and cutting small holes in the dome (three 1" holes). In addition, i cut another hole in the bottom of the smokey joe and attached an air supply tube with a computer fan and controller to help moderate the swings in temperature. Now, my primary griling tool is a Traeger Jr Elite.

    I look forward to reading more in the PIT and trying different techniques and recipes posted on AR. If you are ever in the neighborhood, drop me a line.
