I am from Annapolis Maryland, I am married 13 years and a father of two. I don't have much time for cooking but do enjoy it when I can. I like experimenting with new ideas and am looking to grow my taste buds in a healthy way. My wife is a vegan so I will be looking to "WOW" the love of my life with flavor. The equipment is in need of replacement but does the job for now. It is a Char-Broil Quickset. I would like to learn how to smoke fish and veggies. I also have a turkey fryer that we hardly ever use.
