    Tom in Mountain Top, PA

    Hello, fellow hedonists! I'm making smoke here in NE PA. I've been grilling since the 70s, but I only got half decent at it in the last 20 years or so. I stick to the basics: ribs, butts, steaks, chicken, burgers... guy food. Mrs and I didn't meet until we were both in our mid 30s, so I had a head start learning to make what I like. I used gassers for years until the last one resisted its final internal rebuild and I went out and splurged on a Big Green Egg, trading one set of compromises for another. (Given the choice, I'd have one of everything, of course.)

    I don't think I can add much to the set of knowledge provided by Meathead on Amazing Ribs; Meat, you are single minded in your pursuit of truth, and I like to cook steaks outdoors. But I can act as a data point, and I'll try to ask good questions.

    Oh, and I'll put my chili up against anyone's.

      Welcome, I looked forward to seeing some cooks, anybody who has been cooking that much for that long surely has a lot to share.
      My in-laws come from Eerie, pretty good good up that way. Smith hotdogs and Railbender were personal favorites.

            Let me try a photo: Country style ribs, German potato salad, fresh NE PA corn, heirloom tomato salad, and of course a beer. I don't remember which one.

              You got it! Next, be sure where the cursor is when you place the picture, since that's where the pic will squeeze in the post. When posting pics of food, it's better for bragging if you post 'em big to show that delicious detail!

                Thanks. That was from a couple summers ago, so I don't remember much detail. I tried editing it to fix the photo placement, but when I open the edit panel on my iPad, nothing was in it. It appears I was only offered the option to type an entirely new post. I'll poke around some more, see if I can figure it out.

                        Welcome Mosca, I just joined and have about the same story as you. Been cooking a long time but not at the level I want to. You are right about adding to the info that Meathead has already done. Gonna be hard to do. But I love the site.

                            Next time I fire it up, Deuce, I'll document it and photo it. It's basically the classic San Antonio recipe, but grill the steak and char the vegetables. Comes out tasting like Texas.
