    Howdy from Truman Town!

    Hi folks, I've been lurking here on AR for about a year and just recently joined the pit. What an incredible resource for a guy like me just getting serious about BBQ! I live in Harry Truman's hometown of Independence, MO, just on the east side of the KC metro area. About a year ago I won my local newspaper's "Ugliest Grill Contest" with the beauty pictured below. Turned the gift certificate prize into a Weber Performer Deluxe and haven't looked back.

    Ordered a PBC this week, can't wait to get started with a new piece of cooking gear. Thanks to Meathead and everyone for making AR such a great site!
