    Howdy from the thriving metropolis of Port Salerno, FL

    Port Salerno -- A small drinking village with a big fishing problem. I'm nothing special. I love to cook. Sometimes, I get lucky and it comes out edible. I'm semi-retired. My wife owns Manatee Max and I work unpaid for her. In return she lets me live, eat, shower and stow my gear here.Click image for larger version  Name:	Bruce&Bryan20170803.jpg Views:	0 Size:	100.3 KB ID:	949841 Given my druthers, I'd rather be drinking, sailing, napping, [REDACTED], or eating all the stuff I've been told I shouldn't. I have a wonderful wife, two awesome sons (33 & 19) and a lab/pit mix named Bruce Danforth. He is the family's anchor. I'm blessed in a lot of ways although I tend to forget that sometimes... too often.

                      I was brought up in the south, so I can barbecue a pretty mean pig butt. I couldn't figure out the trick to make tender ribs until I found AR. On a side note, If you bring your panhead to south Florida you have to get it detailed while you're here. You can drink beer and shoot pool while you watch 'em clean your bike. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXaI...ature=emb_logo

                          Welcome to the Pitmaster Club from central MI! What a fun intro to read. Happy you've joined up with us. You seem like you'll fit right in.

                          Since you’re new here, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

                          Also, it's very important that you:
                          1. Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your username in the top-right, then My Settings, then the Account tab. You currently cannot change your email on file with us yourself since it’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor if you’re a paying member. Don’t worry though, we’d be happy to change it for you, just click here to fill out an email change request.
                          2. Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important so you can receive special deals we occasionally work out for our members, receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as one of our 3 monthly “Great Giveaway” Sweepstakes winners, which is open to all USA members. (Paid members get automatic monthly entry, whereas Free Trial members or general public must enter manually.) We’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us!
