Hello, from Arizona.

I love to grill and smoke, and still wonder why I have a stove.

I use indirect heat when grilling and use water pans for smoking. I use a lot of pecan and alder wood, lump charcoal, and competition briquets. I like to brine, make my own rubs, and sauces. I like a little music while preparing and cooking.

I built my first UDS couple of weeks ago and now working on my 2nd build.

Thank you for the welcomes.

I need to start doing some Q-views,  but we have friends over every Saturday and I seem to forget about pictures. I did smoke salmon (wet and dry brine,) made crab cakes (i will smoke next time,) burgers for the kids, corn bread, and grilled asparagus.
