Glad to have found this forum. I've looked at many and this seems to be a place for the same type of interaction/sharing that the homebrew forum that I participate in is as well. I love cooking, grew up in LA (that's Louisiana) and have been cooking for along time. The wife and I love to cook, although she's a "I like this don't change it" and I'm a "this is good let's see what happens when we do this" type. I mean if its good, you never know if its gonna be real good unless you tweak it. Anyway, I've been "smoking" meats for a long while, but have really gotten into learning how to use different techniques to do create all kinds of food. Glad to be here, I'll be asking lots of questions and hopefully posting some stuff to critique.
