Just to say hi and tell y'all a little about my cooking history. I'll cook on just about anything you can burn coal and wood on or in, from a brinkman basic smoker to the pit and a few in between. I'm a bit of an old school BBQ type and usually prefer cooking with oak and hickory. Understanding that sometimes wood is a regional thing and you use what you have. As i have several pear trees on the property we have used some of the pruning to cook our Thanksgiving turkey. That was a pleasant experience.
I cook for the family and for LARGE groups with the help of a few friends. Its all just a good excuse to spend a little time having fun and drinking a cold adult beverage or two. Not to mention enjoying the product of the labor. I look forward to learning more about cooking and sharing with any that need a little advice. Its all about getting better every time you do something - especially cooking :-)
