View Full Version : Another NJ BBQ fan

01-02-2011, 10:43 PM
Greetings from NJ. Since there are not too many good places up this way to get quality BBQ, about 4 years ago I resorted to learning to cook my own. My main equipment is a simple Char Broil H20 Smoker. I'm probably looking to upgrade to an electric soon (I know it's cheating), just so I can get more use out of it. I'm a big brisket fan, and I prefer my ribs with a nice Memphis style dry rub. I make everything from scratch. My BBQ sauce is sweet, but recently I've been experimenting with some new recipes to change things up.

I've been to a few competitions as a spectator, but would love to eventually take the class to become a CBBQJ. It seems like I can never find a class in the tri-state area. When I do find them, either registration is closed or the class is over. I'd appreciate any information if you have it concerning classes.

Welcome. I bought the Traeger so my wife can use it while i'm on deployments. I know it's cheating too, but whatever makes her life easiest is ok by me.

Welcome sp005! I'm an offset guy myself, but I'd say good bbq is good bbq no matter you get there - don't sweat the electric thing, it's different strokes for different folks which is what makes the whole thing so interesting. It's all about good eats with good folks. Enjoy the site!

Welcome aboard sp005!

Electrics ain't cheating, as long as you like what you're doing & happy with results it's all good.
