My name is Bob and I'm been living in Georgia since 2002. Originally from Pa. and also lived in Ct, NC and current at Ga. Married with 3 kids and one grand child. Very new to this whole thing. My wife Betty has been an unbelievably great cook from the moment we met back in 1998 and is not afraid to create pretty much anything (she's looking up making a rub as we speak). My family bought me a smoker for Christmas and handed me a beef brisket and ribs as part of my gift. I've always had a passion to be a slow cooker but too intimidated to cross the line so I guess you could say my family pushed me over the line. I am now the proud owner of a Master Forge 2 door gas smoker. Got it for Christmas and put it together yesterday. All I've done at this point is season it. Looking forward to learning and meeting new folks.
