    The PaynTrain Has Arrived

    Good afternoon brothers and sisters of the meat!

    My name is Jeremy, and I am new to the Amazingribs forum, but not new to cooking. I am from Seville, Ohio, and have recently moved to Greenwood, Arkansas. I moved to accept an offer to be Senior Director of Applications, I/S at USA Truck, which is going great. Anyone that does not know what that title means, I am essentially a high-tech redneck!!

    Outside my family (wife 34, son 10, daughter 5), my passions are hunting and grilling/smoking. I have had a 7 burner Ducane stainless for about 13 years, but she has not been touched in the last 7 years. That is because 7 years ago I bought a large BGE, and never looked back. I have cooked probably close to 1092 times on it thus far (3 times a week, times 52, times 7), and our favorites are pork shoulder, brisket, ribs, bone in chicken, and Guinness can chicken.

    Recently, I purchased a loaded Yoder Durango, and it arrived earlier this week. I am so excited to have this weapon in my arsenal, and I intend to do some serious damage with it. I chose this grill based off reading this site in detail over the last year. Also, I just ordered the Smoke thermometer the minute I read the review yesterday. Looking forward to trying it out!

    I am super excited to be a member, and am ready to grill as part of a community!

    Oh yeah, and I don't cook without a beer, and choose Bourbon every other time I am thirsty. On the speakers is anything from Metallica and Alice N Chains, all the way over to Eric Church and Johnny Cash.

    Thanks, and cook on!

        Aw man, that is one bucket list for me. I never made it to see Cash, and I need to book Metallica!!

      Great taste in music too, I'm the same way. Hard rock to 80s rock to country, even golden oldy country. Only thing I can't do is angry death metal and hard core rap. Not fond of modern pop country either. I feel it's pop dressed in country's clothing simply there to make record companies money.

            It's really exciting to see someone as excited as you. Sounds like ya'll are a serious hombre when it comes to dealin with the meat. I'll be excited to see your yoder. Welcome aboard & enjoy the exciting ride!

            l think between the two of us we may have set a record in the use of the word excited in a single thread. That's exciting!

            Welcome to the pit Jeremy. This world could use a lot more High Tech Rednecks. Bow season opened in my area of Louisiana last weekend, did not se anything but my motto is a bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work any day! From a Low Tech Redneck welcome to the Wikipedia of BBQ.

                While cooking I listen to Stanford-Townsend's Smoke From a Distant Fire, Deep Purple's Smoke on the Water, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by the Platters. After getting sufficiently hyped, I attack the food. Oh - I'm from Chico so I have to drink Sierra Nevada while cooking.

                  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.

                  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.

                  Groundbreaking Hybrid Thermometer!

                  Thermapen One Instant Read Thermometer

                  The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

                  Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


                  Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                  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’.

                  GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


                  GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
