    Hello from Detroit!

    Metro Detroit but close enough. I'm a family man who loves blues, brews, and 'que (not necessarily in that order). I've only ever been a backyard propane griller, but I am ready to get into the smoke game. I intend to purchase a PBC as my Christmas present this year and I'm pretty sure I have my first 4 cooks planned. I found the site a few months ago when I had this notion to cook a prime rib for the first time. I ended up doing a dry brine followed by a reverse sear on the grill with Mrs. O'Leary's cow crust. Big hit. I'm lovin the good-hearted humor and tips while the engineer in me loves the food science. Happy to be here and keep learning.

    Welcome from a fellow Michigander in Grand Rapids! You'll love it here. Always new things to learn!


      Welcome from Indiana


        Welcome to fun and learning! Post pictures of your successes. You should find the PBC is a wonderful cooker.


          Glad to have an east sider here. Hello from West Michigan.
