Lightbulb Greetings from a homesick Mid-Westerner

Hello all! My family is from the bootheel of Missouri, I grew up in St. Louis, and recently moved to North Carolina from Kansas City. I've been so homesick for real Midwest BBQ that I've searched high and low for a taste of home in Raleigh. Sigh... My search turned up with no precious brisket, no sweet & smokey ribs, and no real pulled pork (sorry but that NC BBQ is not my style) and no place to call home. One day I was raiding my pantry and I found myself snacking all day. I realized I was hungry for real BBQ and will keep snacking until I get me some beautiful brownies. Then an idea hit me like a 50# pork butt: I can learn to cook the food I desire so much!! My Husband is the grilling king and makes a grilled chix breast so good that I don't ever order one from a restaurant because it will never stand up to his. HOWEVER why should he have all the fun? If he has a big shiny toy in our backyard why can't I have a big (or small) shiny (or matte black) toy of my own? So I searched and searched online for months. I settled on a WSM. I found a butcher shop whose willing to make cuts for me (you can't get a real pork steak in NC). So now to be the Queen of Que at least in my mind..

Welcome to the forum KCBBQueen, glad to have you join us and hopefully take part in the other forums. WSM's are great smokers

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.

Welcome!

Now to say ya can't find real pulled pork in NC is a little insulting. But, I'll get over it and chalk it up to not knowing where to look.


If ya wanna know anything all you have to do is ask and your brethren will help all they can.

Ditto to Lantern. Welcome to the Carolinas, home of the greatest ever. KC might be good for some folks, Memphis for others, but Carolina Q is always tops. It's where BBQ started. Give it a fair chance and good luck with your WSM. Joe
