I stumbled across this site last month while looking for a recipe for smoked beans. I love BBQ'd foods and enjoy cooking food on a grill or smoker.
I have cooked on a grill since I was a kid. When I moved to Kansas City almost 30 years ago I lived in a basement level apartment. Since the aprtment was half in the ground, I rigged the living room window to slide open. I could place my little 3-legged grill out on the ground and cook from my living room. And I grilled a lot of food from that window.
I have really gotten into smoking meats in the past 5 yrs, although I started about 20 yrs ago. I got an idea for a meat rub from my son, who got the idea from Ollie Gates when he was on a cooking show. I enjoy cooking briskets, pork roasts, ribs, chickens, and turkeys. I am going to try smoking some fish (salmon) this spring. I received a new Brinkman smoker to replace the old one I wore out and to supplement my indirect horizontal smoker.
I am looking forward to trying recipes from other members on this site.
