Hello All,

Yes, there is such a thing as Ohio BBQ.
Although I will say that I learned how while stationed in South Carolina and Georgia.

Started with a Silver Smoker. Built "Brutus" a pull behind rig a few years ago. Also bought an electric vertical job a couple of years ago to simplify my life, but found out that I enjoyed tending the pit almost as much as eating the Q. So it not collecte dust on the back deck.

Will be entering the local KCBS competition locally here for the first time this year. So I plan on acquiring as much knowledge as possible from this site to help turn my backyard BBQ into competition Q.

Thanks All
Roksmith

Here's a picture of Brutus and I.

The front shelf swings out of the way to give me access to the lower racks and folds back for transport.

Welcome Rok,

Nice looking setup you got there! I was also stationed in S.C., for three years at Ft. Jackson in addition to three years in Germany, courtesy of the U.S. Army. Don't know if you were Army or Air Force but it doesn't really matter. Welcome to the forum and I hope to see you at an Ohio comp or two!

Welcome Rok! After you get finished whooping them in Marietta, then come on over and show them how it's done in Kettering.
