    Greetings From Walnut Creek, CA

    Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum and I'm fascinated by the amount of experience and knowledge presented here. I've been doing 95% of the cooking in our household since being married 36 years ago. My wife cooks and does a few things very well, it's just that I like to branch out and try different cuisines. I don't get any complaints from her! I've been grilling since a little kid, or at least I was watching my father grill. We got a Weber grill as a wedding present and it has been my outdoors cooker since then. I can cook just about anything on the Weber, but I want to concentrate on grooving the low-and-slow technique. Going to try my first whole packer brisket using a Slow 'N Sear next weekend.

    I'm a retired scientific instruments salesman - industrial X-ray analyses. Besides cooking and eating, we enjoy travel, sailing, photography and marksmanship.

    Cheers all!

            Welcome aboard OneEyedJack +1 on the Kettle and SnS. I started a boston butt at midnight on mine and I can't wait for some pulled pork later today. The aroma is invading the neighborhood this morning.
