Hello I'm from Lake Charles, Louisiana. I'm an avid outdoorsman who loves to cook outdoors. When I go on hunting or fishing trips I enjoy cooking the game as much as getting it. I've been cooking over open fires since I was in Cub Scouts and fell in love with it. I've owned a Cajun Grill pit for almost 20 yrs and just received a Masterbuilt 40 for Christmas and still haven't had a chance to use it, but I have a 22# tirkey thats been in a brine for 2 1/2 days and in about 7 hours it's going in.
