Hello All,

Kentucky Kookers here. We're from the Owensboro, Daviess County, KY area and we love to barbecue.

Me and a good friend first competed in a barbecue cook-off back in 2006 at the KCBS Grillin' & Chillin'. It was local and we thought, why not. At the time, we didn't have our own cooker and we had to borrow a couple of cookers from some good friends of ours. We didn't do bad for our first competition. Anyway, we decided that we needed our own cooker so we built our own out of a 500 gallon LP-tank the following summer. We competed again in 2007 with about the same results. We also competed this last time in 2008 and was somewhat disappointed in our placement. We didn't place last, but we were way too close. Anyway, we've met several people during these cook-offs and they've all been GREAT people. In fact, that's how I found The Smoke Ring.

We've cooked for one wedding reception so far and that was a BIG HIT for our first time out. We've also cooked for a fundraiser and for the Luau weekend out at Diamond Lake. Again, these have all been BIG HITS.

Anyway, we would like to start making a go of cooking barbecue for people and would greatly appreciate any advice in getting started. We're thinking seriously about getting another cooker and would welcome any suggestions.

The Smoke Ring appears to be a great site.
Thanks to All!!!!

I head that the Shady Rest closed and reopened under a new name is that true? I remember the old Menu " Little Mary had some lamb... Won't you have some too?
