    Matt Ford here!

    Quick introduction: I'm English but now a US citizen living in Texas. I think like most of us, I enjoy entertaining on the back deck with a beer and some well prepared grub! I typically cook with a weber 22.5, but also have a gas grill for when speed is of the essence, a Pit Barrel Cooker when lots of meat is needed and a pig box (caja china type thing) for when only a whole pig will do. Love the site - great advice, logically and thoroughly researched. Well done all contributors.

    Hi Matt, welcome! Look forward to your insights!


      Great last name and choice of cookers!!!

      I am Cajun, but in east Texas since 2001. It is similar to English, just a bunch of water dividing the two.

      Thanks for the support!!!!!


        Welcome Matt, thanks for the support. England to Texas. Wow, I'm thinking culture shock I don't care what JB says

        Good job filling out your signature, but let's get that PBC and your gasser added to it! Also any thermometer(s) you use.

        When you get a minute, check out Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you learn your way around The Pit, as well as the best way to post nice big pics here... we like to see bragging pictures of your equipment and your cooks. We look forward to hearing more from you! Enjoy!
