Don't be embarassed, we all learned this stuff at one time or another.

Default Thanks for the help!

I appreciate the advice. If the listed recommendations are true, I'll be savin' a ton 'o dough on lump and wood.
I'll make a deal with any and all takers: I'm sincere about this hobby and would love to just tag along with someone more experienced to a contest, weekend cook, etc. just to learn how to be a little better.
Heck, I can watch the fire while ya sleep, be your wood lumper, rub the briskets, take out the garbage, polish the truck, feed the dawgs, etc. for the chance to learn more and ultimately get more enjoyment out of this (if that's even possible!) than I currently am.
I really am consumed by BBQ. It's the thing I think the second-most about (my wife knows the FIRST and she would get mad if I shared that here!) Okay, okay...I'll tell you what that first thing is...I read BBQ cookbooks at night.

Thanks again,

Ken (the Mrs. wonders if I'll ever quit mentioning my pet name for the smoker in my sleep.)

Ken,
I really hope you can do that!
I have "washed dishes" twice for Championship caliber cooks.
Learned so much about how to cook and how to win that it was worth every mile, every hour, and every $ spent.
Keep yourself available and hook up with any team that will let ya play for the weekend.
You will learn a lot, not only what to do, but what not to do.

Good luck.

TIM

Don't feel so bad - I do that too. I really like reading them on the subway. It confuses people.

Ken I like Tim audited a winning caliber team and it took me two months to ingest all the little things I could remember. (and I forgot and missed a lot) I was able to spend time talking to these guys about what I thought I heard, saw, and understood it was an experience like no other. Thanks to those who let me share and those I met what a time to learn!

We affectionately refer to this person as "The Pitbitch" and yes it's a good way to pick up tips, tricks, and knowledge.
