    Good Evening from Pleasant Hill, IA

    Greetings from Central IA.
    My name is Mike, and I have been a lurker on AR.com for several years...I have tried a ton of the recipes even made some tweaks to suit my families preferences. I have intended to join the Pitmaster club for a while now to support the cause and give back to those who run the site and have provided me so much wisdom.

    I grill and smoke mostly as a hobby, and I love to cook for others.
    I consider myself an amateur, but I get a lot of requests for family gatherings and work parties, I never seem to have a problem having too many leftovers. I don't ever see myself on the KCBS or any Cable TV shows, but if the opportunity presented itself, I think I would enjoy some local low key competitive events.

    Of all the food I have made over the years, I have never tried my own sauce...I will be giving that a go with an AR recipe within the next few days...my favorite bottled sauce is Sweet baby rays, but over the last couple years I find myself dragging a few bottles home every time I hit the BBQ store...Mo Cason makes a good one.

    I enjoy trying new things, as well as implementing new twists on old favorites.

    I hail from Pleasant Hill, IA

    My toolkit consists of the following:
    XL Big Green Egg
    Weber Genesis S-310
    Masterbuilt Electric Smoker (pretty much retired)
    Thermapen (Lime Green)
    BBQ Guru Wifi pit controller
    Maverick ET-732
    A-Maze-N Pellet Smoker
    Anova Sous Vide circulator
    way too many other accessories to list

    Hi Mike... Welcome Aboard

        LOL..Thanks for the kind words, Im glad to be here. I consider myself a Hawkeye fan at heart, but as my kids get older, several of thier friends have migrated to cyclone country...and a few are invovled in sports, so I try to support both unless they are playing each other...that said, we will never spend any money on cyclone apperal, until they want to help me offset an education bill, then all bets are off.


          Welcome to the Pit! Nice hardware line up. Post some pics of your next cook...we like food photos. When I post photos of finished ribs or boston butts on Facebook I have a friend who calls them "food porn".


            ​Welcome to The Pit Mikedyer74! Glad to have you here. I have a simple BBQ sauce recipe in the sauces section that's pretty easy to make if you're interested. Making your own sauces is fun, since you can add one key ingredient, or maybe a couple, and make up a fancy name and your friends think you're a gourmet!

            Great job on you signature.

            Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

            Also, it's very important that you add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list in case you are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner!

            Hope to hear & see more from you!
