Hello. My name is Rob . I am from Michigan, Macomb Township. Just turned the big 50 in November. Smoking meat is rather new to me. Although cooking and grilling since I was around 12. I am glad to read and learn from this site. A big fan of ribs and burgers on the grill. I am a C.N.C programmer and C.A.D designer . And have been in the tool industry for over 33 years now. I also enjoy brewing beer and frequenting local brew pubs. Fishing the lakes of Michigan and local waters with my 3 boys is how I spend most weekends.
