    Greetings from frigid Iowa!

    Matt here sending warm thoughts from a cold place. Even in this weather I never completely stop grilling and smoking. I'm an engineer by day and a home cook in my free time. Meathead's masterful website quickly became one of my favorites when I ran into it years ago. His exploration of the scientific principles underlying the cooking process has earned him my undying respect. For those same reasons I'm also a big fan of the Cooks Illustrated family of products.

    My cooking interests tend to be driven by what contests I plan to enter at the next state fair, and that can cover everything from ice cream to quick breads to ribs. I also entered a KCBS contest a few years ago and finished middle of the pack (but got a call for my ribs). I may try to do another KCBS contest this year but haven't made any decisions yet. I've also gotten into charcuterie since taking a class last fall, but I'm definitely still a novice at that craft.

    I'm looking forward to learning more about cooking and sharing some great ideas with everyone.

    Welcome, sounds like you have a lot to share. I drove to a wedding in Le Claire years ago, man there is a whole lot of nothing out that way.

      Well, we don't have as many people as some states; but there are acres of crops and millions of pigs (which are just pork chops on the hoof - delicious).

            Thank you for the warm welcome. For the record, in spite of the long list of cookers, I mostly end up using the Party for smoking and the Performer for grilling. The WSM is a recent acquisition so I'm hopeful that I can start using it once the weather warms up.
