    I can't tell you or i'd have to have someone take care of you.... j/k

    for the last 11 Years I've worked at a larger business 5 of the years on the help desk working my way to up a Cyber Security Engineer focusing on endpoint protection being the subject matter expert for Antivirus, Whole Disk Encryption, Malware Sand-boxing, Data Delivery, and i forget what else. I'm just a whole bunch of geek.

    I've enjoyed computer and console gaming over the years and still do today even at 36 years old.
    I also Deer Hunt, Fish, working on Turkey Hunting and small game i've gotten my conservative patriots licenses for the last couple years in WI and have tried to do as much as i can.
    Ice fishing is another big thing I like to try and do but getting older and it getting colder you want to stay warm, so i am redoing a 30 foot Holiday camper. We have gutted the entire thing and put in a portable bathroom / shower pan. It will have surround sound and 3 TV's so we dont miss football while we drink and monitor our Tip ups with Bluetooth sensors... 3 beds and a propane heater, c02 alarm fire alarm.
    and BBQ

    some of my hobbies other than BBQ are camping, shooting, knife collecting, cast iron collecting and cooking, football, survivalist/ emergency preparedness, and all things military related.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            the good one grill

            The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

            Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

            Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

            masterbuilt gas smoker

            Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
