    Blowin Smoke in Middle Tennessee

    Morning everyone, I'm Steve from Mt Juliet, TN. I have always had a love for cooking for people, but now have become obsessed (my wifes word, not mine) with the world of barbecue. Recently bought the Meathead book and reading it intently.

    I've been a computer engineer for 20+ years and absolutely hate the corporate world now. Time to move on. I have tried to start some local catering jobs with the equipment I have in the backyard which is a cheap offset Chargriller Pro and a River Grille vertical. They have been working fine for gilling and smoking respectively, but would like a better option for expansion to a mobile system to take to festivals, soccer games, the many local 5K races, etc...

    I really appreciate all the great information here and soaking up all I can.

    Hey Tennessee. Huntington Beach welcomes you, your equipment and your obsession. We don't judge.... unless you boil your ribs or pork butts.

      Welcome, sjburk1! I'm just up I-24 in Clarksville. I too am a man obsessed with the Dark Art of Dark Bark. You are in good company here. I'm also interested in doing what I call "custom BBQ" for small gatherings or events on the weekends. Just need to put myself out there I guess. Good luck with your endeavors!

                    I threw my computer on the smoker one time and it is my experience that it didn't add one damn thing to the taste... from one computer programmer to another.... Welcome to the pit... and Carry on.
