    Me too!

    The only thing smoked on my current menu is spare ribs; next week we are going thru a menu change and the ribs are going off and being replaced by smoked and them sous vide pork belly.

  4. Does being an artisan chocolatier count? 

    If so, then me too! [​IMG]

    Working with chocolate, it's less about the cooking and more about the alchemy of foods.

    Best chocolatier & confectioners in America awards 2012-2015, received for results in competitions taking place in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Napa and Monterey.

    maybe I should have  phrased the question better,  such as " how many here ( are or have been)  professional barbecuer"s  "..

       Back in the 80's I was the BBQ Chief for the Delta Mountain Inn in Whistler B.C Canada..sounds impressive..!!

    I grilled a couple of lunches pool side and did prep while I took in "The View" beside the pool/tennis court.

    After the first grueling four hr's were over I would hang out in the Village (Whistler Olympics/Vancouver) for some refreshment

    and then back for the evening shift..usually a steak BBQ for somewhere between 30 to 120 people.

    Always cooked a few extra so the staff ate well..mmm..Tips..!!
