    Greetings from Yorktown VA

    I thought that after a number of years on the free part of the site and a few months as a member I should introduce myself.

    This site and Meathead's book brought my then-limited smoking and grilling skills to a new level. I had purchased a BGE from a friend who did not find that it met his needs. I used it for pulled pork, vertical chicken and searing steaks for a number of years with good success but after an introduction to this site, learning the science behind the cook, my food has improved significantly.

    I now use a SnS on my Weber using a Maverick thermometer and Thermapen with great success.

    Thanks to all who post their techniques and recipes.

                                Never tried pizza. I had the small size BGE and now prefer the Weber with Slow 'N' Sear for cooking.
