Hey everyone. I did things a little backwards and made my first thread, but I'm sure I'll be forgiven! I'm Branden, 26 from Fresno, CA and today is my 3rd smoke... but I've got quite a bit experience on the grill and in the kitchen too! (my mom is a chef, so I have a permanent cheat code to a lot of information... partnered with Google I think I can do it all!) My meals will be enjoyed by my fiance and 2 children... occasionally our cat Harlo and of course, the guests to every boxing fight, UFC fight, and football game! I have a Weber grill 18", Thermos 21", and a Brinkmann Smoke N' Grill. I work from home so I have a lot of free time to learn and prepare/monitor food... I own a marketing/advertising company. I also enjoy reading, gambling, the occasional beer or six, and traveling. Ok thats all for now. Looking forward to learning more and lots of great food to come.
