BBQ Expert, Pizza making newbie
« on: November 10, 2013, 07:28:52 AM »
hi there -

I own a BBQ joint in Chicago, Rub's Backcountry Smokehouse.  I've been doing BBQ for a long time now, and LOVE it - but my absolute favorite food that I could eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner has always been pizza.  More specifically, even though I'm from Chicago, I love Neapolitan style pies. 

I've been looking at expanding/opening another restaurant in the next couple years - and it may just be a Neapolitan pizza joint - we'll see.  At my BBQ restaurant, we cook with all wood - I've always preferred to do things the old-fashioned/traditional way - so I'm very familiar with running a wood-burning oven, just with opposite techniques (low and slow compared to hot and fast).

Excited to learn from some ringers here, I've always enjoyed talking BBQ in the BBQ forums - so thanks for any help ya'll give me in this new cooking journey.

Welcome.  Neo is an interesting choice for a member hailing from Chicago.  No problem, we welcome all.

For me, I've had a lot of neo lately and would prefer a deep dish for lunch.

This is a huge forum (IMO), becoming proficient in advanced search is one key to happiness.  Another is patience (as in 'every once in awhile I make a really good, almost neo, pie').
