I've been hanging around and posting lightly for a while, but never introduced myself in the cattle call, so here goes....

I've been cooking Q the right way for several years now, and after some prodding from my wife and family decided to try the competition circuit. First competition was in Rhode Island this past May, got called for second place brisket and third place overall and I was immediately hooked.

Second competition, caught lightning in a bottle and took Grand Champion at the New Hampshire Rock-n-Ribfest. Was one of the most exciting moments for me, and these days most of my spare time is spent either reading about, practicing, planning or otherwise just thinking about Q.

Haven't had as much success in our last two competitions, 9th in Lake Placid and 13th at Hudson Valley, but that just has me motivated to improve. I've had so much fun and met so many great people along the way. I enjoyed meeting some of the brethren in New Paltz and look forward to meeting more of you in the future.

In "real life" I work as a radio news reporter in Hartford, CT for a national wire service and bartend part time at the New Haven Country Club. Been married for four years to my wife Sheila, and we have no kids.
