    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.
