I'm a western Pa. foodie who has been cookin with smoke for 25 years. My current rig is a green egg, but I've used several homemade rigs and contraptions over the years. At 55 I still have way too many bad habbits, like dirt bikes, quads, guitars, beer....but what the heck, lifes short ! I'm self employed as a bathroom remodeler operating my buisiness "The Bathroom Company". I've been using my wife and three kids as my official taste testers,( as well as a few choice neighbors ) to refine my recipes. I'm looking forward to following this web site and sharing ideas with people who enjoy filling the valley with hardwood smoke as much as I do!!
