Default Joinin the Brethen from West Texas

My name is Cary, and I live in West Texas. I found the Brethen through BrooklynQ's blog, ************************************.

I have been barbecuing for about 15 years. I built my current smoker out of an old propane tank several years ago and I am now working on building a pull behind. I am Looking to do a some competition cooking and maybe some catering in 05, any advice is welcome.

This seems to be a great site with a lot of experience and knowlege hanging around. I look forward to spending time with people that share my interest and learning a thing or two along the way.

Welcome.

What part of "west Texas"?

I lived in San Antonio for a total of 11 years and spent a few months at San Angelo (Goodfellow AFB) in '73.

Quick quiz:

Chili. Beans or no beans?

Welcome Meat!

(There's an opening if there ever was one.) Pull up a chair and grab an adult beverage. You're sure to enjoy yourself here!

Where in West Texas are you?

Cary, Welcome Brother! It would be great to see pictures of your home built pit and some in progress pix of your new pull behind too. Maybe you can teach this MOFO (missouri member) how to cook with mesquite!

Wow, what a busy forum. 10 posts after just a few hours. You really know how to make a guy feel all warm and fuzzy.

I am in Lubbock, TX. I am sure many of you are familiar with Lubbock, as BrooklynQ said, because of Texas Tech. My wife actually works for Texas Tech.

I am really sorry I missed the debate over chili. I strongly believe real chili DOES NOT have beans I love beans and I love chili, but I do not love beans in my chili. :D

I have a picture of my pit on my blog at http://bbqandbeer.blogspot.com. I did not take a single picture of the contruction so I can only show you the finished product. as far as the pull behind, I have a 500 gallon tank and large pipe located, but I have had a hell of a time getting them picked up. I will post pictures as soon as I get them in my possesion.

Thanks for the MOFO explaination. Texas chapter? I need to check this out.

Smoke rings go out to all of you for the welcome. I am excited about the forum and will be glad to help out where I can.
