Greetings all!

My name is Bill, and I am a newcomer to the BBQ world... I have always been a fan of the eating part, don't get me wrong, but having some food over the past couple of months from my dad's Traeger has me interested in starting this myself!

I live in Salida, CA (Northern California, in the Modesto area) with my wife Nicole and our two English Bulldogs Zoe and Zeus. We also have a baby boy on the way that will be arriving in February.

One of my passions is cigars - in fact, I moderate a cigar forum, StogieChat, and have what my wife would call an excessive collection... http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/./images/smilies/icon_cool.gif I am also active in my local Masonic Lodge, and am a Shriner and member of the Scottish Rite. We do a lot of work in the community that is very rewarding.

Oh, and I am a bit of a coffee person and have roasted coffee as well, though I don't do that so much any more getting ready for the family and all.

I will have a lot of newb questions, and hope that you will be gentle! http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/./images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif

I have looked at several BBQ forums, and this is one of the few that I actually registered for and plan to partipate in as it seems to have the same great atmosphere that my cigar forum does. :thumb:


Thanks for having me!

LOL.... that is why I usually just tell people Modesto...

We really like the small town feel versus Modesto - I grew up in Lodi back when it was a lot smaller than it is now.

We were all new at one time, it's a great place to learn and attribute.
