Hi all,

Just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I am 36 and work in I.T. in order to support my BBQ hobby. I have been cooking BBQ for about 20 years and had an experience that I'm sure some of you can relate to. After so many years of hearing from others how great my barbecue was I decided that I wanted to get into competitive barbecue. So I entered a few backyard competitions and sure enough, for the most part, I stomped everyone. Naturally the next step was for me to enter a pro competition. I found a small local event and showed up there with my little barrel smoker and a kamado cooker. Let's just say that did not turn out as I had hoped. I got my butt handed to me. So that's currently my main area of focus for my hobby: getting myself ready to get into competitive barbecue. I'm hoping to learn from those of you that do compete and to share and learn with all the backyard-only folks too.

I currently own a small brinkmann barrel smoker, a Bubba Keg kamado cooker and a large custom charcoal grill. I am hoping to buy a trailer smoker within the next week or two.

Anyway, it's great to be here. Seems to be a lot of good discussion here.
