    Cheers from Wilmington NC

    Let me start by saying I LOVE THIS WEBSITE.
    I've been cooking on a large BGE for 12 or so years with various charcoal types, but Kingsford Hickory is my fave. I have cooked everything I could think of on it with some awesome wins and spectacular failures...and I mean ruined holiday feast type failures. I consider it all part of the outdoor cooking experience and I have a kind and supportive wife.
    My user name comes from my wife because I am in search of the holy grail of brisket that I tasted when I was a teenager on my own in Houston Texas. I was sleeping on a lot of couches and when I could get a little coin in my pocket I would get a brisket sandwich from a Randall's grocery deli. To me it was heaven on a bun, so I have been trying to recreate/find that flavorful meat again, which my wife calls Mikes Brisket Quest.
    A little about me; 50 years old, I'm a road biker/staying fit kinda guy, have not eaten any wheat in over 22 months and feel like I'm 25.
    I just ordered a Pit Barrel Cooker using the Amazon URL from Amazingribs and am gonna start out with a choice 8 lb flat brisket that's been in cryovac at 35 deg for 3 weeks.
    Thanks to everyone involved in this site and I look forward to being part of the community.
    Cheers, Mike
    P.S. I will include pictures.

    Welcome Mike! We're glad you're here.

    What kind of road bike you got? I've got a Litespeed Vortex frame circa 2006, Shimano Dura-Ace components and Mavic Ksyrium SL wheelset. That said, I haven't ridden it in a year. I've taken up swimming. Roads around here just aren't safe. I live in Charlotte, NC.

      Ridley helium carbon frame, full ultegra group and mavic ksyrium wheels. Rode 3000 miles last year and just crashed it about 2 weeks ago. I may have cracked the frame where the seat stay meets the rear wheel bracket. I've been avoiding the bike while I heal but I have to go to the LBS and have it looked at.
      Did I see a post on here where you naved on C-130's???? If so we may have meant, I was a combat controller from 85 to 95 and departed many 130's from various altitudes. Spent all my time at Pope in Fayetteville NC.

      Yes I was a C-130 Nav. I was stationed at Pope too! But alas it was from 98 to 01, so we didn't cross paths there. Now the army owns it *shudder*.

      Welcome to The Pit. Can't wait to follow your quest for Brisket. Hopefully I can follow along and learn from it. Oopps, what am I saying everyone can learn.

        The quest has been a walk back in time more then anything.....the more I look back, the more I learn.
        OK the tequila is talking, time to put down the iPad
