  1. Hello eveyone,

    My name is Big John I live in South Lake Tahoe ,CA. I have been grilling for 20 years steaks, burgers, chicken, etc. both gas and coal. I just bought a smoker, a Brinkmann smoke 'n grill. I have never smoked before and figured I need a new adventure in Q. the real thing. I love the taste of smoked meat ribs, brisket, pork shoulder, etc. I enjoy playing the guitar (blues) boating fishing camping and most of all drinking beer. I drive a concrete mixer in the summer months and plow snow for the county in the winter. I have been married for 17 years to a wonderfull woman who can't wait for me to get the smoker going. She like it when I cook because she not to good at it. I have a son 16 and you know how teens eat, anything and everything. Thats me in a nut shell, and I look forward to meeting and talking, chating, and exchanging information,and good stories, tall tales take care and happy smoking

    God Bless

    Big John
