View Full Version : Been here too long to not have introduced myself...

03-31-2005, 03:43 PM
Hey all. I have been learning from you all for a couple of months now and just realized where the Cattle Call was to introduce myself. I am a pretty new Bandera owner with the Baffle Mod and the fire grate mod. I have posted questions about fire control and received a lot of great advise. I am also the proud owner of a WSM but I prefer the work that goes into my dera. I am also pretty new to the BBQ Competitions and I will probably be looking for advise when the next Cookout rolls around. Now, I won't be dumb enough to ask for recipes of rubs, sauces, etc. and if I ever ask a question that is out of line for Competative cooks, let me know. Like I said, I am pretty new to Competative cooking and I have found at the competitions, other Qer's don't like giving out too much information. I, however, enter the competitions for fun and experience and don't mind giving out information to less experienced cooks that myself, or anyone for that matter. Anyway, I try to check in about everyday and see what is going on and I am looking forward to sending in pics and information about my upcoming sucesses and failures.

Welcome Steve. I too compete for the fun of it and don't mind sharing ideas with fellow Q'ers. Post often.

Enjoy what you learn and share what you know!

I only did that to see if Neil could come up with something else. :lol: :lol:

Welcome Steve!

Ask any questions you want! I have actually found most competitors to be very helpful at the few cook offs we have competed.

Glad you found us!

I have mentored more than a few teams and do give up technique and recipes to a point but coming up with your flavor print is part game. Learning fire control and the right mix of spices and smoke are your personel touch.
Enjoy the trip.
