    New guy from the home of the Spiedie

    Hello, I'm originally from a small town close to Syracuse, NY. Go 'Cuse! For the last 20 years or so I have lived a little farther south near Binghamton and the home of the Spiedie. I've seen Meathead's recipe for them on the site.

    Most people probably would not think of NY as a BBQ area but in addition to the Spiedie we are home to Cornell Chicken which is served at almost any fundraising event thoughout the area.

    Up until about a year ago about as much outdoor cooking I did was to cook hotdogs, hamburgers, and steaks on my propane grill and was not even the best at that. I saw several Kamado style smokers at various stores which seemed interesting except for their price. I did some research on reviews and made my decision based on a review on this website. I bought a Broil King Keg 5000 based on the review, price, and the fact you could out on a trailer hitch which meant easy transport when my family goes camping.

    With the help of the website and Meathead's cookbook I've done so much more with pretty great results. My favorites things to smoke are pork tenderloin, pulled pork, roast beef, and brisket. I've done pizza as well with some mixed results. Seems like my first one for the day comes out fine and I burn the bottom of the rest.

    Well ill I better shut up for now before I bore you to death.

I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

                            I see it says your in Clay, NY. I grew up in Auburn and my dad and uncle both worked at New Process Gear in Syracuse for many years. Been to Clay a few times. I lived down in Endicott for about the last 20 years do you have a fondness for Hoffman hotdogs and salt potatoes like I do?

                            Yep, one of the Many Places around Central New York that People Used To Work. Too bad we have so many Empty Buildings, but it is getting better. Hoffmann Hots and Hinerwadels Salt Potatoes are definitely on the menu.
