    Long time reader, first time poster

    Hi! My name is Jon, and I am originally from the Lubbock, Texas area, but have been living in Clarksville, TN since 1996.(Thanks to the Army!) I just realized that I have not posted since joining the Pit last year. I've been retired from the Army for 3 years now, but I still work with the military as an FSR for FLIR Systems, working with airborne IR sensors. I've been grilling and smoking for 15 years or so, but since I discovered Amazing Ribs awhile back, my smoke game has definitely improved. I currently use an Old Country Over and Under smoker, but I also cut my teeth and experimented with Meathead's recipes on a cheap vertical gas smoker, which still works great, before I bought my stick burner. My dad was a butcher, so I have a keen interest in the different cuts of meat and how to best prepare them over flame and smoke. Since he passed away 2 years ago, this has been a way for me to honor and remember him while doing something that we both loved. There is no better feeling of satisfaction than there is at that moment when you set that platter of smoked meat on a table, after 12-18 hrs of tending fires and checking temps, and your family and friends begin enjoying the fruits of your labor. Barbecue truly does bring people together.
