Hello to all:
Since this is my first thread I'll tell a little about myself I enjoy grilling when I can trying anything that I hear about or come across. My equipment isn't much to be proud of but it gets the job done, I have tried cooking/grilling with propane but it didn't work out.

I can only ask everyone out there if they have a favorite food, cooking method or chef that they like. I got started by the chef's on TV but the one I admire is Jeff Smith who had a series called the frugal gourmet. I am also into dutch oven cooking and enjoying it very much.

Hey there ribs. From one newbie to another, welcome to the group!

Bobby Flay is pretty good. He even has a series called BBQ with Bobby Flay on Food Network that you might want to check out if you haven't seen it already.

Thank you all

I want to thank those who welcomed me into the group. Yes I have watched Bobby Flay now & then, although I wish I had his kind of grill. That must have cost a pretty penny

For the most part I like to keep an eye on the Good Eats show and record any that catches my intrest.

Hey Ribs, Welcome from yet another newbie here!

I'd say my favorite cooking methods lately are baking and stir frying.

Don't know much about the current crop of TV chefs but grew up watching Jeff Smith, Martin Yan and occasionally Julia Child. All excellent.
