Hi everyone,

Been lurking for awhile and learned alot. I went on a few business trips to Texas last year and got addicted to bbq. I live near Portland, Or and there is NO good bbq here, very few people even know what it is.

I found a New Braunfels Bandera on Craigslist for $125, only used once. I've been cooking constatly since then, driving my family crazy with my obsessive behavior, but having a lot of fun.

My dream is to start my own business, but I'm taking my time and doing my research, eating all the bbq I can get my teeth on.

I look forward to running some of my ideas past you and seeing what you farkers have to say-

peace out,
honkytonk

Welcome... My wife's favorite jeweler is in Portland... My least favorite, probably for the same reason it's my wife's favorite... she likes to buy from them (or prefers me to buy from them).

Anyway... have fun, and share some NW 'que pics with us.

.... commenting on covering (OR NOT) your pit. Sounds like you'll need a cover, shed, and lots of PAM spray up there in OR.

All the best!

They say a burning pit gathers no moss, but I bet it's a struggle!

Welcome HonkyTonk. Ever catch one of my good friends Kelly Thibodaux's shows up there? He lives in Portland and is very well known fiddle player on the blue grass scene.

Welcome, Honkytonk. Glad to have a brother on the opposite corner of the good old United States.
If you live in a humid climate, the only way to keep your pit from rusting is to keep it hot.
Cook, cook, cook. An idle pit is a rusty pit.
Sorry, could not resist.....welcome, and enjoy the ride.:-D

Wow!

You guys really know how to make a farker feel at home (farker is now my new favorite word). For the last week I've been working in Sequim, WA. Beautiful place, nestled between the Olympic mountain range and the Strait of San Juan.

Wouldn't you know there's some good bbq up here - Jeremiahs BBQ (http://www.jeremiahsbbq.com/index.html)
They've only been in business a few months, but they're on the right track. The owner took the time to tell me all about his business and his Southern Pride (http://www.lovebarbecue.com/smoker.php?mid=2) Pit. Nice surprise to find this place and I've been there for lunch three times.

One other thing, maybe I jumped the gun when I said there's no good barbecue in Portland. Just because I haven't seen it doesn't mean it does not exist. But there's not much, and I plan to do something about it.

Thanks for the warm welcome,
Honkytonk

You will have some of the best Q up there after a few weeks of
reading what is on this site.
Really glad someone from around there has joined.

I hear the fishing is great up there.

Glad you found some eats HonkyTonk. You know bbq is indigenous to the good ole US of A. You can pretty much find it, in one form or another, everywhere if you look. There may not be a sign out front, but somewhere close there's a guy with a fire, a dirty t-shirt, a Pat Green cd playing, a Jack and Coke and large hunks of tastee meat cookin. Uh, thats me doing what I love best on Father's day.
