Hello Everyone, I'm Ryan, originally from a small town outside Austin, Texas. Been smoking meat for the past 17 years. Learned the ropes from a competitive team in Texas many years ago. Recently picked up an Oklahoma Joe smoker. Also use a Brinkmann electric dome smoker. Owned many others over the years (propane box smoker, Charbroil Pro series, 55-gallon barrel. I'm excited to see what some of the their folks out there are using. I love mixing things up, adding the regional flair to my food as I travel around the country in the military. Incurrently live in Florida. I look forward to meeting everyone!
