My name is Cary, and I live in West Texas. I found the Brethen through BrooklynQ's blog, ************************************.

I have been barbecuing for about 15 years. I built my current smoker out of an old propane tank several years ago and I am now working on building a pull behind. I am Looking to do a some competition cooking and maybe some catering in 05, any advice is welcome. :wink:

This seems to be a great site with a lot of experience and knowlege hanging around. I look forward to spending time with people that share my interest and learning a thing or two along the way.

Welcome.

What part of "west Texas"?

I lived in San Antonio for a total of 11 years and spent a few months at San Angelo (Goodfellow AFB) in '73.

Quick quiz:

Chili. Beans or no beans? :twisted:

Hey Meat Head.

Glad to see you here. Nice blog you got there. These are some of the most knowledgeable guys on BBQ on the net. And ulike other BBQ forums, we guys share all their secrets.

I spent a summer in Lubbok back in 1981, spent a semster at Texas Tech studying architecture. Nice little town.

Cary, Welcome Brother! It would be great to see pictures of your home built pit and some in progress pix of your new pull behind too. Maybe you can teach this MOFO (missouri member) how to cook with mesquite!

Wow, what a busy forum. 10 posts after just a few hours. You really know how to make a guy feel all warm and fuzzy.

I am in Lubbock, TX. I am sure many of you are familiar with Lubbock, as BrooklynQ said, because of Texas Tech. My wife actually works for Texas Tech.

I am really sorry I missed the debate over chili. I strongly believe real chili DOES NOT have beans :!: I love beans and I love chili, but I do not love beans in my chili. :D

Cary, Welcome Brother! It would be great to see pictures of your home built pit and some in progress pix of your new pull behind too. Maybe you can teach this MOFO (missouri member) how to cook with mesquite!

I have a picture of my pit on my blog at http://bbqandbeer.blogspot.com. I did not take a single picture of the contruction so I can only show you the finished product. as far as the pull behind, I have a 500 gallon tank and large pipe located, but I have had a hell of a time getting them picked up. I will post pictures as soon as I get them in my possesion.

Thanks for the MOFO explaination. Texas chapter? I need to check this out.

Smoke rings go out to all of you for the welcome. I am excited about the forum and will be glad to help out where I can.

Whistlin Dixie! They offer an all you can eat buffet o’ barbecue with all of the meats you would want. They have sliced brisket, chopped brisket, chicken quarters, sliced chicken, pulled pork, beef ribs, sausage, ham… proabaly more that I can not remember. They have red beans, green beans, mac and cheese, hominy and tater salad all on the buffet. And the best part is the desert bar. The place is crazy, I do not know how they can do it. I do everything I can to eat them out of business every time I go. Oh yeah, it is only $7.00 plus drink and tip. Not bad, pay less than $10.00 for all you can eat barbecue buffet.

Not far from the airport is The County Line restaurant. They have great barbecue and steaks, but even better is the location and atmosphere. They are located next to a river with a beautiful patio, live entertainment and peacocks eating off your plate. It is great fun sitting out on the patio listening to some music, drinking some beer and watching the peacocks mingling with the patrons. I usualy get a steak at The County Line, but they do have good barbecue.

If you put beans in it, it is not chili. So the question is chili or not chili?

I grew up about 75 miles from there. Plenty of mesquite wood out your way for that world famous TEXAS brisket. GO RED RAIDERS!!!!!!
