Been lurking around for a couple months now, encouraged by trp1fox to say hello.

By the username you might guess I'm a old computer geek, easier to guess I'm into bbq. If interested, I'll explain the name futher, but won't bore most of you with the details other than to say it means "the BBQ device". Open to interpretation as to whether that's me or the cooker!

I'm a CBJ, sometimes competitor, and have been around bbq seemingly all my life. Some catering in the family history, but for me mostly just enjoying the smoke and good times.

Originally from FL, but in NC for 30 yrs now. My first awakening to low and slow and smoke was a "pig pickin" in college. Amazing to see the effects of time and temperature and nature's combustables on the humble pig! It was years later, recreating that treat for others, that I realized the process was also a day-long party!

Thanks for the nice welcome everybody! I can tell there are a lot of passionate folks here seriously into BBQ and how to go about making it!

Look forward to learning from you, and being able to share with others who appreciate low and slow!
