Hello from North Texas

  1. My name is Gary and I am an addict, well that is to smoking anyway. I found this hobby a few years back and it has turned into a passion. I had an offset for years, but about 7 months a go I purchased a Yoder 640. We use this thing 4-5 nights per week. I am a double cancer survivor and I found myself too tired after all night cooks. My pellet grill has solved that. The best thing that has come from all of this is my kids think Daddy makes the barbeque in Texas.  LOL
