Hello all, my name is Ryan from southwest Michigan. New to the site from the direction of my cousin who is a member. I am certified chef with the ACF. I work as a Hospital Paitent Chef in Nothern Indiana. I have been smoking for a few years but just recently got into a larger scale. I use an mid size CharBroil offset firebox smoker and on occaision for large parties, I use a cusom built direct smoker that sits on an old Chevy chasis. The large one is big enough for whole hogs and can be towed anywhere. I am also big into golf, outdoors, baseball, college football. I do most of my smoking for caterings, large parties, tailgating, sports parties and backyard bbqs.
