    New to the "Club"

    I am new here, but I've been cookin' outdoors for a few years...it is my hobby, my "game", my like some folks love golf or fishing.
    I search the web a lot for tips and advice on smokin' and grillin' and I've found some really good stuff here.
    I am a "student" of Aaron Franklin on all things smoked on the offset. I bought my Pecos smoker because I saw him using one in some videos he posted. I recently received his book as a gift, a after reading the chapter on "Fire and Smoke", it gave me the insight I needed to manage that smoker for the entire cook time.
    After reading so much of what Meathead writes, I have changed up some of recipes and techniques to take my "game" to the next level. For instance, I don't add salt to my rubs anymore. He explained the rationale behind his idea and it seemed to make good sense to me. Instead, I salt the ribs and butts a while before I add the rubs. I have found it DOES work better.
    I have been so impressed with this site, and used so much of the info, I felt I should definitely pay the dues and join the "club".
    I'm not smart enuff to be posting many ideas, but I hope to learn more from you folks as time goes on.
    The magnet with all the temps is a very helpful item and t is on the refridgerater now.
    Thanks!

      Welcome to our community. We're all pyromaniac's. We love starting fires. We all came here to learn. New guys soon become contributors because a question comes up that they know the answer to. Feel free to contribute at anytime even if it's just pictures of your food or gear. If you've got a good joke go to that thread and humor us.

                Hey, Y'all...I feel like a new member all over again. I have no idea what happened here, but I am just now seeing these "new" messages after a year and a half.
                I hope to be able to maintain contact here because I enjoy outdoor cooking so much.
                I now have a couple of Weber kettles and an Akorn...broadening my horizon's, so to speak.
