I look forward to reading and receiving some great info, advice, and input on these forums. My name is Steve. I am soon to be 30yrs old, a father of two, a physical therapist, and a competitive brazilian jiujitsu athlete. I live in Niagara, Ontario, Canada. I grew up with a passion for cooking and eating. I went to culinary school but dropped out after a year but the passion I have for food has always remained. as much as I love to cook elaborate meals, my most favourite way to cook is as primal as it gets. Meat, fire, and time. Low and slow. I currently have a cheap, hardware store char grill offset. It has served me well (as well as a cheap offset could) fot the past 2 1/2 years. I am currently in the market for a new offset. Lookin at a few different pits and could use some advice (another reason I joined the forum). Look forward to getting some great advice.
