Hello All,

This is a great forum, we learned about it from our neighbors at the Royal this past weekend.

We are team based in Yorkville, IL (about 60 mi from Chicago) but our team cosists of memebers from Tampa FL, St. Louis, Mo, Hannibal, MO, and Indy. We are new to the circuit but did 3 contests this year.

My Father in Law and I have talked about this for awhile and finally made the jump this year. We love the sport and are consistanly amazed at the family community that the teams all have.

We have taken a very home grown approach to the sport, my wife and are event producers and travel the world so we only get to participate when we are at home but we all have a great time.

My partner Dennis and I cook on 2 - 30 gallon custom trash can smokers we designed and fabricated. As well we have a smoker built in our family blacksmith shop (never thought that would come in handy), and of course a Weber Kettle (the Swiss Army Knife of Grills).

We hope to run into other members out there zig zagging across the country.

Keep on smoking....

no problem I will post a picture of Lil Ed our upright and the Q cans are very unimpressive from the outside, but it's what's on the inside that counts.

Nope, Kevin was next to us at the Royal. And let me say this... our new brother is a great guy, along with the rest of his crew! We decided together that the AR can keep their "dark side" and loud parties! Next year, we want to cook on the serious side!

Welcome again, Kevin!

Thillin,
I will post some pics this week. What part of the Lone Star State are you in? I lived in Dallas / San Antonio for a total of 5 years before moving back to the heartland.
