Hi... my name is Vincent B and I'm a grillaholic.
BigDawg, welcome to the group. Its cool to see someone who's experienced the exitement of how much better their grilled food tastes after discovering Steven Raichlen's books, show, and website.
I couldn't believe how good my food was and I've just scratched the surface.
If you tell most people "This grilling cookbook changed my life." they'll look at you like you joined a cult. Its cool when you see someone else impacted like you've been though.
Considering I'll be cooking and eating my whole life, I hope this barbecue thing is more than a temporary obsessive-compulsive phase I'm going through.
BigDawg, have you thrown any real wood in that Weber yet? It's not limited to charcoal. You have one of the most versatile cooking devices ever invented.
By the way, BBcue-Z and I live in the Atlanta area too. Its awesome to see more locals.
