    Tampa Bay Native Cooker

    Hey Hey Hey from Tampa Bay! I was born and raised here in the area....I am in my 40's now. I spent 17 years in restaurants cooking and kitchen manager...fast casual, casual, and fine dining. I just moved to a different house and could not bring my freaking smoker because it was too heavy. UGH. I love cooking and cooking outdoors....right now it's sadly a regular gas grill, but my girlfriend wanted a fire pit and it came with a cooking grate....anyone use these? I want to throw on some meat when the fire turns to embers. Not sure what wood they have around here. Is it safe to use enviro premium flame firewood from a grocery just for kicks? Says its a combo of oak,maple, and poplar...and other hardwoods. Its Kiln dried. Skurred lol. ,Don't want to get sick! I used to smoke boston butts, whole chix, and ribs . Good to be here. I like the site and the info! I also fish and have eaten almost everything edible from the Gulf of Mexico....mostly inshore species. And GO BUCS!

        I have harvested two hogs, One in the east, one in N. California. Both tasted great.
        Not much pork belly for bacon.

                    Is the smoker abandonment permanent? There are adaptations you can do with yer gasser & there is plenty of stuff to do with that fire pit, oh yeah. Welcome, eat good & have fun!

                    Welcome from MD- I have a fire pit with a cooking grate. What I love about it is cooking breakfast on it after a night of 'solving the world's problems'.

                      In the fire pit it's always wood. Cooking on it has mostly been an after thought, not anything planned out. You know, you wake up hungry and in need of a greasy breakfast to cure the night's sins, stir the embers, add some wood, and drop a cast iron on the grate.

                    Hello from Merritt Island. Sadly, we've run out of natives to cook over on the Space Coast.
