My name is Ryan Bardo and I'm from Erie, PA. I was 10 years old (I'm now 33) when I first fired up my Dad's Weber Kettle (which I still have and use) and I've been addicted ever since. I own two WSM's (18 and 22) and two 22 weber kettle silvers. I hope to own a Lang 36 and a Pit Barrel Cooker very soon and I plan on starting my journey into competition BBQ this summer in a few KCBS competitions. I'm a factory rep for Stanley Black & Decker as my day job and outside of that I'm spending time with family and cookin Q as much as humanly and financially possible. Glad to be here!!!
