Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm in the northern part of the state right now. Its kind of an amalgamation of east Tennessee and s. Louisiana. Slightly hilly, a little cooler, but I still have access to the food. I grew up cooking cause of my father. So even though I was in Tennessee for so long I could still cook the staples, jambalaya, etoufee', gumbo, etc. But I've caught (pick up on the pun?) onto the barbeque bug several years ago- I'm talkin' the 8 to 9 hour slow cooked brisket kind of bbq, I have 4 different pits and grills. Redfish on the half shell is pretty popular down here.
