    What do you do for work?

    So, purely out of curiosity, what do you do for work? Also on that same note, what’s your hobby, besides bbqing succulent meat?

    I’m a signalman for BNSF Railroad, and I’m a car guy to the core. If I’m not cooking, I’m messing with my car. Just interested in what other people do and enjoy.

    I am basically a retired automotive technician after working on cars since 1973 so I guess you could call me a car guy. My son and I now own an automotive locksmith business. I don't do much work any more but keeping up with the business finances and book keeping is about all I want to do anymore with a bad back and other pains from all the abuse I put my body through over all those years.

    Electrical and Software Engineer, and my main non-BBQ hobby is brewing beer. Shooting guns also. Just don't mix the beer with the guns and you will be ok.

      Thank you for the inspiration. Maybe if I drink beer next time I am shooting around the farm I can finally hit the broadside of the barn.....;-)

      Terry Kath, just saw a documentary on Chicago. Kath was Jimi Hendrix’s favorite guitarist, Jimi claimed he was better then himself in an interview. Struggling with drugs and alcohol he did “accidentally” shoot himself in the head.

      OK back to your regularly scheduled program...carry on..

    As discussed in the podcast, I work as an analyst for a cabinet level agency, focusing mostly on travel administration and a small budget, as well as process improvement and various special projects.

    My main hobby aside from cooking is currently a Star Trek game on my phone.

      It was called Star Trek Timelines. I have since quit it. Harder quit than here, as I deleted the app. I dunno that I would recommend it.

    I spent 7 years as a Mining Engineer for a very large gold mine in Nevada and now have been working in the Environmental industry in California for the last 25 years. Other than BBQ, I enjoy traveling both with and without our RV and making wine.

      So would the Gold Rush guys be mining like that without the TV money?

      I think the TV money definitely helps them. There is still plenty of gold out there but the ones making the big money are like where I worked. We were moving 500,000 tons of rock per day and producing 1.6 million ounces per year.

      I'm a cubicle dweller in a large accounting department, I'll spare you all the details. Aside from BBQing, I enjoy fishing, photography, gaming, and a few other random things.

        If it makes you feel better they remodeled our office and put in an L-shaped desk and everyone is asking us if we went corporate. Thankfully most of my work is not in the office.

      Well, let's see, in a previous life I owned a landscape business in San Diego, then worked for a public park in the SF Bay Area before becoming a chess instructor and working for UPS where I started off loading package cars, then delivering in lower Berkeley, and finally driving feeder (tractor/trailer). I bought a farm in NE Washington, moved up and for a few years hauled cryogenic gas from Trail, BC to Portland/Vancouver for a couple years. 'Retired' to farm and care for my father who had Alzheimer's Disease while working feeder for UPS in Spokane during peak season (Nov/Dec). Last year went back permanent with UPS for health benefits as our $6000 deductible policy now costs us $1300 a month.

      Hobbies would be games (chess and dominoes) farming (vegetables, chickens, and hogs) old trucks (1950 F6 and 1956 F100) and brewing ale, although I haven't done that in a while.

      I've worked in aerospace manufacturing most of my life. For the last 12yrs I've been primarily reverse engineering turbine engine parts for small aircraft. Other than bbq, I like to video game.

        Cut my eye teeth with crop-dusters. Got my A&P back in 82 working at a glider port. Lots of crop dusting and banner towing too. Dang those were the days man.

        I've read some on how they're reverse engineering parts for some of the old aeroplanes. Interesting stuff. A working A&P since 1979.
