    Hello from the Austin, Tx area!

    hey everyone, I'm Tyler from Kyle, Tx. I've been grilling and smoking for the last few years, and it's definitely a passion for me! I own a Weber performer grill, and a Weber smokey mountain as well. My next purchase will definitely be an offset smoker! I've been browsing the amazingribs website now for a few months now, and finally, I'm joining this forum. I look forward to learning new tricks and techniques, as well as trying some new recipes! Thanks everyone for your time.

    Welcome snickerd25


      Welcome, Tyler snickerd25 !

      Glad you're here, an' lookin' forward to what you have to say.
      Lots to be learned here, as well, but then, you already know that, right?


        Greetings, Tyler ... welcome to the Pit!


          Welcome snickerd25 from a fellow Texan! (West Texas) I sort of envy you living so close to all those Great BBQ joints in Austin! Ever tried Franklin's? how does it compare to your own??

            yeah its really nice being surrounded by all this great BBQ, but hard on the wallet! Franklins brisket is far superior to mine, but to be fair, I've only done three in my lifetime.
