    Hello for Bay Area, California

    Greetings Everyone

    Been coming here for sometime and decided to join the pit club today. Absolutely love this site. You guys have simplified (just being polite..heh heh) every step of the recipes for guys like me.

    Made my "best turkey ever" (wife said it and got lots of browny point for it.. ) following the smoked turkey recipe here.

    In addition I have made pulled pork and last-meal ribs from recipes here. Everyone who tried my BBQ was dutifully taken for a tour of this website after checking out my pride and joy, a Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5" Charcoal Smoker, and my Weber S-330 Grill. Looking forward to trying more recipes from here to expand my repertoire and take advantage of everything this website has to offer. Thank you, for making me look good as a pit boy!

    Got some some SL ribs brining for tomorrow. Will report back...

    Welcome and congrats. I apparently did so well for the in-laws family reunion that I have been recruited to smoke a turkey and a ham for Thanksgiving, I have not had much luck with birds so far...
    Share some pics if you get some, I haven't seen output for a WSM yet.

        Welcome Mizu. That's a great looking bird. Congrats on it turning out so well. Nothing like having something come off the smoker that everyone brags about.

              I have a wonderful assortment of temperature reading devices, like infrared, instant read, and stay in brands.... all are good and kept in calibration.

              I love beer guys... I can say I've tasted/sampled hundreds, maybe a thousand. I brew my own and love local Texas selections. Shiner has a wonderful selection of brews I like. There are many others in Texas worth putting to your lips. I drink what tastes good, no matter where it's brewed!

              I experiment with food on the grill/smoker and in the oven. I'm inspired with what I read. I love to show off with family & friends.

            Welcome, Mizu! Good looking turkey.

                Welcome Mizu! Nice bird you cooked there. I think you're underselling your skilz a little bit in your intro. You've made several recipes that demonstrate you're really into cooking.
