    Hello from Michigan!

    Hi All,

    I am new to the Pit and relatively new to amazingribs.com. I learned 95% of what I know about BBQ from Malcolm Reeds over at howtobbqright.com, but I am excited to join the Pit and soak in the knowledge. I am located in West Michigan (Grand Rapids), and interested in all types of cooking and food science as a means to an end... eating delicious food. My current specialties & favorites are smoked chicken, ribs, steaks, making Indian curry from scratch, Hot Chicken, handmade pasta (shoutout Chef Evan Funke) and Chilaquiles

    I am interested in improving/learning/discussing the following in no particular order:
    - Making my own chili powder. Currently experimenting with various pepper combinations
    - Building a dry aging setup, as well as taking a crack at making Pancetta (although Bot scares me quite a bit), which I can't seem to find any of high quality near me.
    - Brisket Brisket Brisket
    - Food science. I am a science guy, love Alton Brown, and the more science oriented nature of this site!
    - Consistent excellence with Ribs, Pulled Pork, and Brisket
    - Improving my side dishes with grilled smoked food
    - Sourcing high quality meat and smoker wood in West Michigan

                  Hey BigCountryQ ! Where do you source your wood and meat from? I love going up to Bird Farm Meats in Howard City... but am still in the process of finding a local butcher.

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It’s among the best bargains for a smoker in the world. This baby cooks circles around cheap offset smokers because temperature control is so much easier. Click here to read our detailed review and the raves from people who own them.
