    Greetings from southern PA and thank you!

    I've been hoping for something like this for a while, since you don't have a book I can buy and I've wanted to reciprocate somehow for the vast amount of good info I've received from this site.
    I live in south-central PA where I play Irish fiddle, teach martial arts, and cook up BBQ. This site has pretty much ruined me for going out to BBQ restaurants though. Let's face it; unless you get to the restaurant at just the right time, you're pretty much eating leftovers, and there's nothing better than fresh BBQ.

    Welcome. Fiddle and martial arts. Quite the combination. Thanks for the support.

      I brought a fiddle to a knife fight once. Still won.

        Too funny. You could bring one arm to fight me and still win, by forfeit.

        You can throw a fiddle so much farther!

        Welcome Keith! What style of martial arts do you teach? Many a years ago I was a black belt in Kyokushin.

        Welcome Keith, Sounds like you are enjoying life's journey. I look forward to your posts in the future. Can i deduct that you do Bluegrass and Country music?

          Well, you could deduce that, but you'd be wrong ;-) I respect the musicianship involved in Bluegrass and Old Time, but it just doesn't move me for the most part. (With the Carolina Chocolate Drops being a notable exception) I can enjoy classic country that's close to its roots, but the modern stuff is just mediocre rock music with a twang. If you don't have a banjo or a fiddle, you have no right to call yourself country as far as I'm concerned. For everything I don't like about modern country, just watch this video:

        I am not a fan of modern country either. When I was growing up some of the guys were Earl Scruggs, Lester Flats, Buck Owens from Bakersfield, CA and a lot of others. I also like the Cape Brenton Island music which always has a fiddle in it. I have a close friend that makes banjo's and my brother in laws pick. Sorry i mislead you on my choices.

          Cape Breton music is more Scottish than Scottish music is. Not even kidding.

          I know, I have been there on the Ceilidh Trail and the Scots there are real quick to tell you they are the real Scots. My roots are predominantly Scot and you can feel things there that are awesome.

Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
