I'm Jay, from Toronto. Been cooking over wood since I was a kid going to camp. Be it my personal little grill, a campfire, a big 6-burner lux-o-q, I am a King of the Grill... But new to smoking! Decided I wanted to have a go at real BBQ, an not just grilling. I have a Brinkman charcoal vertical smoker from Bass Pro, and my first go at it was a rousing success! Did ribs, nice a slow, over hardwood coals and hickory chips for 6 hours, and they fell off the bone just by looking at them hard! So now I'm hooked! Looking forward to learning how to prep, cook and enjoy good food on here!
