Howdy Everyone !
My name is Marco, and I live/work in northern Colorado. I've been cooking and working as a professional chef for nearly 20 years, however my bbq experience has been limited to smoking about a half dozen whole hogs, backyard grilling and then oven braising meats rather than smoking because I didn't have the equipment. I've been in the foodservice business since 1976. I've been happily married for 22+ years, and my wife & I have a beautiful teenage daughter.
I've also been homebrewing beer for the last five years, and I just became a certified beer judge thru the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program). I've been kinda messing around with food & beer pairings for the last five years as well.
I'm in the process of buying a used (1996) electric Cookshack smoker for the work kitchen, and I've been thinking about building an outdoor kitchen at home for a few years as well.
I look forward to being part of this community.
