Is your interest in "Smoke Cooking", "Grilling", "Both" or "Other (Please Specify)" ?

I started out on the grill and loved outdoor cooking so much that I stepped it up to smoking meat. I can't get enough of that wonderful smell that wafts from the black barrel. I just wish I had more time to do it!

What is your favorite BBQ sauce: "Store Bought" or "Make My Own"?

I used to exclusively buy Stubb's but have concocted my own sauce that is frankly, is the best I've tasted. I really won't use anything else but my own sauce on smoked meat; if I spent the time on the meat, I want only the best to compliment the meal!

What's your favorite "Sauce" style or taste - Sweet, Spicy, Thin, Thick, NC, KC, or Other (Please Specify) ?

Thick and spicy!!! Unfortunately for others, I'm a bit of a Chili Head and enjoy my homemade sauces more spicy than most. I need to get in the habit of making two sauces: 1 spicy and 1 regular.


I am a "close-to-40" year old PE teacher who loves to spend his summer by the smoker! I am still trying to perfect the art of true bbq and enjoy chowing down each attempt at making the perfect master piece!
