    I stumbled upon this website searching for secrets that the top steakhouses use to make elite quality steakhouse steaks. I had never been to a really high quality place until recently, and discovered the difference. I started looking around and decided to support the site. I've been cooking/smoking/BBQ since I was 15 years old. I don't do it by trade any more, but still have the best ribs anyone who tastes them has ever had. I am now an engineer, so I take the engineering approach to my cooking. I keep making it better until the changes don't improve the recipe or process anymore.

    I love a good steak, pork loin, plate of ribs, or pork shoulder as long it is served with a good Dalmore or Balvenie. I like red wine too, but there is nothing like a good scotch. I'm looking forward to learning this site and spending some time comparing recipes with all of you.

    Until next time,


    Hello Dinger, I'm looking forward to learning your approach. Thanks for joining us.


      Welcome and thanks for your support!!!

      Always nice to have "smaht" people around.
