    Hello from NorCal

    Howdy, folks. I have been a member for a few years, and when I posted a reply to a thread I got a welcome and a note this was my first post. I looked and it seems I did not introduce myself. I have been grilling, smoking, and bbqing for some time, and found this site and it has been a great source of information and inspiration. I started out with a gas grill, bought a couple of books (pre-internet for me) and bought a kettle smoker. I started making sausage and playing around with cooking, and started getting more equipment and knowledge.

    Now I have a gas grill, BGE, Traeger, Weber, offset smoker, and still have the old kettle smoker. All have a different purpose. I still make sausage (primarily bratwurst) and make bacon and pastrami. I have learned a lot and now have an even deeper love for cooking, eating, and drinking. You gotta eat, so you might as well eat well. I have two seasons, beer season and wine season, which are dependent on where I am cooking. Beer season is summer and I cook outside almost exclusively, and wine season is winter when I cook indoors. Being in California, I still tend to cook outdoors to some degree all year.

    Glad to be among those dedicated to eating and drinking well, and sharing the knowledge thereof.

              Welcome to the Pit from north Texas, although you’ve been around longer than I have. You’ve got a lot of good cookers and do some great stuff. When is bourbon season? That’s pretty much year-round around here.
