Hello from Monterey Bay California, My name is Dave and I am a recently retired UPS big rig driver. I have been grilling for over 40 years now and started Qing about 15 years ago. I live on a little over an acre of property covered with Oak trees so have plenty of BBQ wood to use. I have an Oklahoma Joe Longhorn, a Santa Maria grill, and just got a traeger Lil'Tex elite. I am sure having a good time with the Traeger (although it doesn't produce the same flavor as the Ok Joe) it is as easy as using the oven in the kitchen. I don't know why it took me this long to find this forum but glad I did, it is so full of great info. Looking forward to meeting all of you.
