Hey all! I've always enjoyed cooking. Cast iron skillets, dutch ovens, grilling, and now smoking. I love to eat, and being self sufficient, cooking for the family was the obvious step. Have had a char griller grill for years and just added a side smoker box a few weeks ago. Watched a lot of Youtube videos and got good advice from friends. Looking forward to learning more from the site. I like to keep things simple and say cooking is more art than science with a lot of common sense.
