Hello all.

Just wanted to say hello and that I'm excited to be here. I have lurked this forum, and a couple others, for quite some time and think its time to jump in.

I am still in the process of buying my WSM (still holding out for a good deal). I have been looking for a new hobby and always had a passion for good bbq, mostly on the eating end. So hopefully being able to supply myself, and my friends/family, with my own good bbq is very appealing.

I would love to get into competitions one day as what better compliment to get is a group of peers telling you that you are the best, or one of the best, in your field. I'm trying to come up with a cool name for my team, I have a few buddies who also want to get started (one being the owner of a butcher shop) and the rest of us are public servants, aka police. So if you got an idea throw it out there.

But that's a ways away, i think. So for now im just happy to be here and learn from what i've concluded to be the best bbq community on the net.
