    New from CT

    Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helps make this site what it is. I have loved grilling for a while and got into smoking last year (propane grill conversion set up as I'd call it) at weekend picnics. My first "real" smoker (though still gas for cost and ease) showed up today and I have meat coming. Starting with Pastrami ("Almost Katz's), a couple briskets with my old recipe and one from here and trying some SLC Ribs with the "Last Ribs" recipe. I joined because this site has helped tremendously and I am looking forward to stepping my game up for the picnics this year.

    Welcome, Trunks. What part of CT are you in? I was born and raised in CT but moved away about 40 years ago. In the deepest recesses of my mind it is still "home" though.

      Thank you! Shoreline. Family arrived to New Haven in 1636. Dairy farm roots. Don't think I could every move permanently.

        My family were dairy farmers in Weston. Our roots also go back to Colonial times. I was born and raised in Danbury. My dad had a small dairy farm in Redding until just after I was born. I moved to "The Big City" for school and then work and recently moved to the hills of Pa for love. But I hear you.

          Dew, my great grandparents had a dairy farm in Bridgewater, CT. I grew up in New Milford.
