My name is Tom but around Trout Creek, Montana my a.k.a. is Mr.T. I presently work part time as a cook at a local bar and casino. I have a Cookshack AmeriQue, Dynasty smoker grill and a custom cold smoker. I started smoking, brining, pickling and fermenting foods over 50 years ago. I am very close to acquiring my food manufacturing license but, logistics and the cost of gas are hurting my plans. I do the usual Montana things but hard water fishing I love. I am looking forward to learning from all of you and hopefully, helping some of you.
