    Evan, from Seattle

    Hi! I'm Evan, and I'm a meataholic!

    I've been reading AmazingRibs for at least a couple of years, quietly doing my own thing with an old Weber retrofitted with a PitMasterIQ 110. That convinced me that digital is the wave of the future (the fact that I'm a retired software guy had nothing to do with it -- really!), so when a monetary windfall came along, I went big and bought myself a MAK 2 Star, which arrived last week and has been running pretty much continuously ever since. I've done chicken, pork, beef ribs, and brisket, and even tried a couple of cold smoke cheeses.

    Aside from food, I'm mostly a reader and photographer, traveling at least a couple of months a year in our 20' Pleasure Way RV (smallest rig you can get with a full washroom in it), taking pictures and sampling local foods.

    I spent years making computer games (largely with EA) and then rounded out my career with Adobe and Amazon, retiring in 2013 and just kind of noodling around since then.

    Married, two kids both grown, one gone (she's a fine woodworker in Vancouver, BC), one here while he gets certified as a welder, one beautiful red headed wife who's getting her pilot's license, and one dog who really, truly believes what Snoopy used to say: "Dogs were born to sleep in the sun".

                          Welcome to The Pit EvanRobinson! We’re glad you’re here and thanks for introducing yourself!

                          Although you've been with us for some time (and likely read this dozens of times on others' intros), here's your very own link to the homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

                          Also, it's very important that you:

                          1. Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your name in the upper-right, then User Settings, then the Notifications tab. You currently cannot change your email on file with us since it’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor, Stripe. Don’t worry though, we’d be happy to change it for you. PM (private message) “Huskee” with your email change request, or via email at huskee[at]AmazingRibs[dot]com.

                          2. Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important to receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner, which is open to all USA members or those with a USA delivery address (we’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us)!

                          Hope to hear & see more from you!
