    Hello from MI

    Hi All,

    Been grilling and smoking on Weber products for about 14 years now. Haven't been able to do much the last couple years due to traveling for work, but getting back into it now that I'm home for a bit.

    Not much to tell. I'm a KCBS CBJ and have judged a few comps in MI as well as the 2013 American Royal. I'm one of the founding members of the Great Lakes Barbecue Association and served on the Board of Directors for several years.

    Had a chance to cook a couple of years with a team out of WI at the American Royal.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to all the posts here, especially the REC TEC topics. My next BBQ purchase will be the kitchen bundle, hopefully this summer.

    Current equipment:
    2- WSM 18"
    3 - Performers (1 SS model)
    1 - OTS
    Lots of gadgets.

      Welcome my friend. I have both rec tec grills. Check out my post about my first warranty use. They took care of me at 10:00pm at night on a Wednesday. That's service beyond compare. My mini makes food every bit as awesome as my big bull. If you have any questions about a Rec Tec, ask away. I never use my oven (other than storage for bbq tools) must have ran more than ton of pellets through it.

                    I also live in the Brighton area and also managed to squeeze in a few cooks this horrible winter. I am liking that the number of Michiganders in the Pit seem to be growing.
