I have always been a major foodie and absolutely love to eat and cook great food. My favorite type of food? Hands down, slow cooked BBQ. My mom was born and raised in tiny town just outside of San Angelo Texas, and that entire half of our family is still spread out over the great state of Texas. And while we didn't have good BBQ growing up in my hometown of Las Vegas, I was exposed to the greatness of slow cooked BBQ every time we visited family in Texas. Smoked brisket and peach cobbler quickly became my favorite meal. I already had a passion for cooking, and had already mastered the grill, so I decided to try my hand in smoking meat. I wanted to learn to create that great BBQ I loved so much in Texas. So I picked up a Weber Smokey Mountain and started learning how to smoke meat. When I first started learning, I found so much misinformation and conflicting information on the web around smoking meat. I created this website not only to share my passion for cooking and BBQ but to help create an informative resource for pitmasters of all experience levels.
