Hi,

Since my wife doesn't let me in the kitchen very often or for very long I moved out back and started doing smoking and grilling that turned into a pit BBQ obsession. I was already in love with EATING real pit BBQ, but now I'm diving head deep into making it. Being a bit of a food lover anyway I don't find any pleasure at all in making semi-homemade sauces and sides. Any BBQ sauce that starts with "add a cup of ketchup" is dead to me. That said, I am only a few steps off from being a novice, an enthusiast but untrained with only a few months real experience.

In return for borrowing my wife's J A Henckel Intls (I know, not the high end stuff, but the best we have ATM) I had them sharpened, but still don't do all that I want them to do. They are almost "cumbersome" to use. So I'm looking for something more. The internet is full of "experts" and paid endorsements, making finding real opinions harder to come by, so hopefully I can gain some good guidance here.

Thanks for having me.

C

I spent four years in Eugene as a student, and loved every minute of it.

I got several, depending on what you like! :) Good BBQ is good without sauce.

But if food is love, BBQ is sex, hot and wet and a little sticky, the better it is the messier you get!
