    New member in western North Carolina

    Hello, I decided not to wait for my 90 day trial to expire and I signed up for my first year membership.
    I've been reading some of the information on this site for a while and it is truly amazing how much everyone helps each other out and the amount of knowledge out there.
    I'm in western North Carolina and I retired in late Dec. 2016. I was given a monetary gift by my co-workers to put towards a smoker, which I've been thinking about doing for 2-3 years. I pulled the trigger on a Blaz'N Grill works Grand Slam which I've had for a little over a month. I'm still learning how to use it, but I've done a pork butt, turkey breast, Moink balls, and I cold smoked some cheese that I finally broke into after letting it set for 30 days and it was great.
    I just took off my first brisket about 2 hours ago and I can't wait for dinner in a couple of hours, I only hope it turns out as well as the other things I've done so far.

    I'm still reading Meathead's book, there is a lot to digest, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is still thinking about buying it.

    I look forward to learning as much as I can from all the folks who have been grilling and smoking longer than me, thanks for the great site.

      Welcome to The Pit Flat Rocker and thanks for joining! Great job on setting up your signature. Post some pics of that brisket if you can. Just typing this has me dreaming about brisket!

      Since this is your first post, please check out our 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!

              Welcome!

              And hey, assuming you're up near the mountains there, is it really as nice for retirement as people say?
