Budman - AKA Gary Brown. I live in Rocky Mount, NC which is 60 miles east of Raleigh NC. I'm a Technology Integration Manager at a large Bank.
I got my nickname while stationed at Ft. Campbell, KY (101st Airborne) - many a good soldier tried to out drink me but only a few even stood a chance.
Have been eating Q since I got rid of my baby teeth and have been cooking Q in varying degrees some 20 years now. I own an assortment of grills and cookers but my pride and joy is Black Betty. She is a customized Klose BYC and boy does she put out some awesome Q.
I spend a lot of time "lurking" on the forum and have actually contributed from time to time. I hope to one day get up the nerve and energy to join some of the fine folks on the Forum at a contest or two. Just can't seem to take that first step, but I promise I'll make it one day.
Other than Q'n I enjoy fishing and Harley riding. My wife and I also do quite a bit of camping at the Bristol and Rockingham NASCAR races during the season.
All my best to everyone!
