I guess i'll jump in to this:
My name is Brad Hammond, 35, married with no kids and i'm an Architect in Baltimore. I'm originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa and got my degree from Iowa State University (go Cyclones). I got my love for true barbecue whe n I lived in memphis for a summer while at school (ah, those midnight runs to Showboat BBQ). After moving to New Hampshire, then to Baltimre, I managed to talk a few co-workers into trying a bbq contest with me. We formed a team called the Porkitects a bout 6 years ago. We cooked on the now infamous NBBD, but have made the big move to a 20 foot J.R. Enterprises trailer (yikes, what have I done), we have cooked on it a total of 4 times now. Other dumb hobbies include, homebrewing, snow skiing, hiking, and beer drinking. My fantasy is to combine my two big hobbies and open a bbq brewpub (anybody got lots of money?).
