My name is Jeff. I registered a long time ago, but am doing my call tonight. I am Big Green Egg addict. I have an Large and a XL. I also have 2 more XL BGE @ my work! I have a Weber Kettle and a Dacor Gas Grill in my backyard. I have 2 BBQ Guru's & love them! I did my very first bbq competition last summer, under the team name Dr. Deckle & Mr. Hind. We came in 15th over all. We took 4th in chicken and 9th in ribs. We had never even made a box before! It was a ton of fun! We are going to being doing our second event in May. I thinking about a bigger smoker, sometime very soon.

Hello Jeff, nice to have you on the Brethren! I was in the Yorkville and Oswego area a few weeks ago and was surprised that you can find BGE's at the Ace Hardware stores. I think they also had an Eggfest in that area recently.

Bill, Jeff here. I am from Highland Park. But work in Chicago. I run Carmichael's Steak House in the West Loop. I've heard of the Chi-Town Smokers. In fact, lets talk sometime soon. I started teaching bbq classes on Mini Webers 5 years ago at the restaurant. I have 50 grills! Maybe we can get you out for one of our 2009 cooking classes! e-mail me.

Tucky/Don: I was at the Egg Fest at Oswego! It rained so hard that day, I thought the Des Plaines River was going to take us away! Had a great time with all the other fellow egg heads!

Hey biffleg, I ate some great BBq at a place called Southern barbaque in Spartanburg, SC have you heard of it? I really like the vinegar based sauce they have on the tables!
