View Full Version : Hello from Erie, PA...the Armpit of BBQ

08-26-2013, 09:10 AM
Been lurking for a few weeks now and finally took the plunge. Dang, there are some serious masters here! I live in Erie, PA by way of Denver, CO and Minneapolis, MN. None of these places stand out as BBQ havens so I'm going to have to find out what's good on my own! I've just been plodding along and dabbling in smoking stuff throughout the years and finally decided to spend some more time with it and make it a hobby. Thanks for making a place to feed my new addiction!

Welcome and Don't worry PA is NOT the arm pit of BBQ and who doesn't love going to Erie especially Presque Isle State Park? We may not be known for our BBQ but we will be someday if I have anything to say about it. The trick to good BBQ is to ignore everything you read in BBQ books and go with your gut. Try out all your ideas and write it all down failures included and figure out what does and does not work. Don't worry the Brethren are from all around the world.
