Good morning from the west coast. I was introduced to the "BIG GFREEN EGG" in 1998 while dating my "GA PEACH" who is from Atlanta. The long distance relationship developed, we married, she and the "EGG" relocated to California. Thanks to the forum I became the "Grill King of the San Joaquin Valley". Over the years I've compiled a 3" thick receipe book just from the forum. Last year I had an end of the summer party for the people in my unit, baby back ribs and pulled pork sandwiches w/cole slaw. Had some trouble conviencing them that slaw makes the sandwich, needless to say they're hooked, and can't wait for the party this October. My "Peach" is back in Atlanta, attending her class reunion and visiting with her family, so last night I had a buddy over for dinner. Did the always perfect 3/1.5/1 method, w/ Jim's Jack Sauce. Brought tears to his eyes. He claims they're the best ribs ever. As all you "EGGERS" know those accolades are made everytime we open the dome. I've located a source for Hickory & Oak lump in the bay area. Most places on the west coast only carry mesquite. I'll be in Atlanta Monday & Tuesday for work, will definitely stop by "BGE". Getting a little long winded, so I'll close with this...Love life & live it to its fullest in happiness and health!
PS. For those wondering,the name West Coast Smokey has two meanings, I'm also a Detective with the Sheriff's Department.
