My name is Ray from the flatlands of Kansas. I'm just a good ol country boy that likes to cook almost as much as I like to eat. I aways had a nack for buildn things so I just made my own smoker about 3 years ago. I just cooked up about 60 Lbs. of brisket last week for the winter, and as soon as my billfold recuperates I'll be puttn some pork in the freezer too. Lookn forward to trying some different techniques, and recipes. Glad to meet ya.
