Hey Everyone! Glad I got past security. I signed up after seeing all the info for the manorville, ny competition this weekend. I just got home and I gotta say, wow you guys put a lot of work in to making it a good time. I'm looking forward to joining this awesome community.

A bit about me: My name is Ben, and yes, I'm skinny, that's not ironic. I got into BBQ'ing about 3 years ago when I went I went to the store for a charcoal grill and left with a brinkman water smoker instead. That got me started on ribs and pulled pork, and this past year I replaced it with a weber 22.5 kettle and I think my next purchase will beeither another kettle or a smokey mountain. I'd love a BGE, but it's not in the budget. I've done some pretty good ribs and pulled pork, need some more practice with brisket and poultry though. I've also started making my own sauces. My signature is the sriracha stout, a thick dark sauce with guinness, sriracha, coffee and cocoa.

As much as I love BBQing at home, I'd love to try my hand at some competitions next year. I'm hoping maybe I could hook up with a local team to lend an extra hand and learn the ropes. If anyone could use some help or wouldn't mind taking on a learner, msg me.

Rock on!
