Smile New to the BBQ Bretheren...

Good morning everyone,

My name is Mike Haracz and I am part of the Axe-Men BBQ team from the suburbs of Chicago. We just finished up our first year competing and can't wait for next year.

We are currently fixing up a used Backwoods Competitor with built in auto water, hide setter, and convection fan. We also have a Rec Tec pellet smokers, a Pit Boss pellet smoker, and a Weber Performer.

We are currently sponsored by Buedel Meats, D'Alessandro Spices, Stoger Oil, and Scott Wold Designs.

We have our own website at www.axemenbbq.com and you can find us on Facebook as well.

My personal social media info is:
www.facebook.com/mike.haracz
www.twitter.com/mike_haracz
www.linkedin.com/in/mikeharacz

I have been a professional chef for 16 years, and will accept all friend requests, as well as help anyone absolutely anything I can.

Rock and roll!

Welocme to the asylum, Mike! Good to see you here!

Check out the link in my signature. A bunch of local Brethren are getting together for lunch on Jan. 30 at Real Urban BBQ in Oakbrook. We'd love to have you and the other members of the Axe-men join us! Post in the linked thread if you can make it!

Mike, Welcome to the Brethren!! There is a wealth of knowledge and experience amung the members. If you have a BBQ or cooking related obsession or hobby this is the place to be. Sit back, soak up the knowledge and jump in there and be sure to share yours as well. If you can't find or get an answer to the question here then there is probably not an answer available.

Welcome to the forum Mike, glad to have you join us and hopefully take part in the other forums. Your willingness and attitude to help others is what The Brethren is all about.

We don't have a lot of rules here other than spam and advertising are not permitted, the rest is just common sense, courtesy, and mutual respect for one another.

You'll find a great group of people here with a willingness to help and guide you, regardless of of how simple or how complicated you think your question may be. You'll also find that there are many ways to achieve great food, there is no single "cookie cutter" method as some have been conditioned to think. You'll just have to try a few different methods and soon you'll master the way that works best for you.

We'll be here to guide you and answer your questions as you begin your journey into smoking and BBQ. Pretty soon you'll go from asking questions to posting pictures of your progress, and we will all share in your experience as true Brethren.


We have many different forums here.... Below are just a few of them.

For discussion on BBQ/Smoking related topics, we have the "Q-Talk" Forum. This is a good starting point for all new Brethren.

For those who are interested in competing, We have a "Competition BBQ" forum.

We also have a "Catering, Food Handling and Awareness" and "Catering, Vending and Cooking For The Masses".

We also have a trading forum where members can trade sauces and rubs available from different areas around our country.

For general non BBQ related talk we also have "The Wood Pile" forum.


I hope to see you in the "Q-Talk" forum soon. You'll find help on almost every topic from cooking your first Pork Butt to curing and smoking your own ham and bacon.

If you can't find the topic you need help with, or have questions about a specific topic, just start a new thread in the related forum.

There are many members with years of experience that are willing to answer your questions and share their knowledge to guide you in the right direction. Collectively there is a wealth of experience and knowledge among the membership, including you. Don't be afraid to jump in there and share your knowledge and your experiences as well.
