    Andrew in SW Pa, introduction

    Greetings all,

    Andrew from Ligonier, PA here, in the Laurel Highlands/Appalachia of southwest Pennsylvania. Home of the whiskey rebellion.

    Meathead just notified me that I was a winner of the monthly drawing and that made a light go off in my head....duh....the more I contribute and get involved, the more I'll learn. So here I am.....


    A bit more about myself.....mid 40s, father of one daughter, avid mountain biker, bourbon drinker, fly fisherman, fly tier and all things smoked.

    My sole tool of the trade thus far has been a Weber Kettle 22.5 and for hte small scale at which I operate, this has been fantastic. Thanks to the advise from this site, I've done a tremendous amount of ribs, chickens, turkeys, salmon........


    There's a Pit Barrel Cooker on it's way so I'm going to use it as an excuse to begin learning more about shoulder and brisket.

          Welcome, the PBC is awesome. I learned plenty from AR but the pit has done much more, people always around to answer questions and occasionally screw up and be brave enough to post it so I don't make the same mistakes.

            Thanks all! David, sig updated.

            I'm a rank amatuer at all this but I've had some incredible success and great food as a result of the info contained here and the scientific approach just flat out jives with my personality. And I'm really looking forward to learning the PBC

                    Nice work on the sig. What did you pick for your prize?

                      His last sentence says he has a PBC on its way. I assume that's what he picked?

                      Not a bad guess, hopefully he drops back in to let us know!

                    Hey all, Indeed, PBC and ThermWorks BBQ kit headed my way per MeatHead correspondence. There were bigger and badder prizes offered but I decided to "take what you need and leave the rest". I saved some of the better more decadent prizes for those of you with the skillset and space. That said, I have read quite a bit about the PBC and think it will be fantastic. Looking forward to learning all about using it from you folks.

                      That's a great prize. Maybe not the most expensive prize on offer, but those tools will not let you down. Good times ahead!

                        Congrats from one newbie to another! The PBC looks really cool and I'd be interested in your review. I have been lusting after a Backwoods Chubby, but the wife might go along with the PBC's lower price. I'm afraid I already blew all of my brownie points buying a $600 table saw using the reason that she had been on me about repairing a $100 bench . I got away with that one since she loves the new bench, but that was my one free pass this year. Please be sure to use the experts tips on prep and cooking techniques and the sides and condiment recipes are all killer, no filler. Cheers!
