Hi, Glad I found this forum. My name is Clay and I hale from DeWitt, Arkansas. I have been smoking meats since I was old enough to help my Dad. Dad has passed on now but I still smoke-em like he taught me with a few new tricks and methods thrown in.
I am new to competition Q and recently completed my first competition in Gillett, Arkansas. There were 19 teams and I came in first place in the Boston Butt catagory so I am hooked. I did fair in ribs but they said they were too tender. I cooked them like I do for folks at home (fall of the bone tender) but I have found out that the judges want to be able to bite it off of the bone.
I look forward to meeting and talking to others here.
Keep on smokin,
Poppa Clay

Now I know another RazorbI'mack besides Johnny Cash and the Clinton Clan. I'm only 18 months into this smoking thing but hooked completely.

Hey now JBowie, you can count me in with the Cash clan but leave the Clinton's out of it. We told Bill to run for presedent just to get him out of Arkansas.
