Hello everyone, my name is Ray, I live by Grand Rapids Michigan. I love to cook, smoke meat and most of all I love to eat. I have a Big Green Egg which I use the most along with a Weber and a Tee Pee for over the fire. I started smoking about 5 years ago when I a friend gave me an egg. Some of the things my family and friends like me to make are Homemade Pizza, Pork Butts, Salmon, Meatballs, Brisket and good ole burgers. I love playing with different kinds of wood to see the changes in flavor. I have Oak, Cherry, Maple, Pear and Apple off my property. I also enjoy cooking in cast iron. I love the outdoors, 4 wheeling, snowmobiling, skiing, camping, walking my dog and biking are a few of my favorite things. I do have to work so I can buy more meat. I work for an organic farm/manufacturer called Food For Thought. I am outside sales selling to specialty stores and grocery stores around the Great Lakes region. I found this site looking for Made In Michigan BBQ Sauce- Checking out the competition. I represent a few different lines as we broker for a few Michigan Companies- My Favorite sauce is Fessler's BBQ Sauce- Formerly Johnny Secreto. I also Like Esch Road Smokie and Hot BBQ Sauce. I look forward to learning from you all!!
