My name is Excel and I'm from the ATL! I started grilling last spring, and got into smoking in the summer. The growth and progression in my skill set has been nothing short of amazing! When we have family gatherings I now have grill duty! Lol! I've smoked turkeys, chickens, ribs, pork roasts, etc. I've even screwed up a Brisket! Lol (Heavy Mesquite smoked shoe leather!) Still have to figure that out! *whistles* I want to learn more about making my own sauces, rubs, and brines. I've been doctoring up commercial sauces with good results, but there's nothing like making your own! I enjoy reading, traveling, fishing, hunting, fine cigars, and Whiskey!
