    My name is Kevin Sanders and I reside in West Plains, Missouri in the middle of the beautiful Ozark hills. I have been grilling for many years learning different techniques from my Air Force brethren until I left the USAF in 1995. I now work for a defense contractor still assisting the military any way that I can.
    I have recently purchased an offset smoker and have mastered a couple of things, but am eager to learn a whole lot more. I actually am getting started late in age at 53, but I find now I have more patience and just love spending the time outdoors and smoking meat. If I can get good enough I am wanting to open a bbq catering business. I have had comments that my pulled pork is the best in West Plains from fellow workers at my job, but I would love to take it to the next level and I think this pitmaster forum can help me accomplish that.
    Thanks for the opportunity to be part of this pitmaster club.

                Welcome Sandman. Sounds like you're just a pup at 53. I'm 57 & a retired high school principal. I'm setting up a bbq and wood fired pizza catering business myself. Sounds like we are both driven by the same force, those we feed telling us how good our food is
