New to the area

  1. Buenos Dias! Dave here. I am a recovering lawyer who quit the rat race and made myself unemployed 9 years ago.  I moved from SoCal to San Felipe, Baja California 8 years ago. I have kept a home in the San Diego area. I have done simple smoking for maybe 20 years with a gas barrel smoker. To make my life easier, I recently purchased a Smoke Hollow vertical electric smoker. I've done quite a bit of "hot" smoking over the years, brisket, chicken, ham, pork shoulders, fish, etc. I want to broaden my horizons and learn cold smoking techniques. To that end, I ordered an A-MAZE-N smoke generator today and am anxious to get it into operation. 

    I went "whole hog" on this BBQ. I had this pig rotating at my ranch in Baja for about 20 hours!

    Thanks for having me. Dave
