    My husband and I are retired.  We live in St. Joseph, La. most of the year as we run a small business called the Lake View.  We are always happy to fix meals for our guest.

    He is a great grill master and he has two nice smokers and two large BBQ pits.
  5. Fire fighter/paramedic. I work rotating shifts (4 on 4 off), so that first day off I am thinking of what to cook. If I am not at my part-time job as a paramedic on a transport ambulance, I am welding or thinking of what to cook.

  8. I am an artist and a personal chef. [​IMG]  I just purchased an electric smoker, primarily to give my cooking clients 'something different' and unique - smoked meats, fish and sides.  My very first attempt was a pork loin roast....and I must say, it came out pretty good!  Looking forward to experimenting and learning more via this site/forum!
  9. Been in the car business for the last thirty plus years. 29 of those years as either the general sales manager or general manager. I retired for roughly two years then got bored and went back to where I started, selling! I love it, no more headaches of running a dealership.

    I started in the restaurant business for many years.  I then made the unusual transition to being a Paramedic.  I was a Medic for almost 10 years.  The last 12+ years, I have been a Police Officer in an urban police department.  I have been a supervisor for over 3 years.  It's very interesting work and keeps you moving, especially in an urban environment.  I pays the bills.....
  12. Plastics engineer.
    I design bumpers
  13. I own a restoration company. We restore homes and commercial buildings after a flood or fire and have been in business since 1983 here in Southern California.

    Until recently I worked in Charleston SC in the defense (Military Armored Vehicle OEM) industry as a data export control administrator. Recent defunding of our military, and military support industry, have resulted in the loss of thousand of U.S. jobs.  I have recently moved to Richmond VA where I am employed with the VA Department of Social Services as a technical information analyst and document control coordinator. My hobbies are smoking/grilling food, working out, and golf.
  15. I am in the printing industry.

    I print newspapers.

    When I am caught up with that I run smaller presses where I print just about everything except money or postage stamps.

    I also do photo shop stuff for the paper and I design and build the pages for one of our papers that we print.

    I joking say that I am a barbecue guy who runs printing presses in his spare time. Silly joke I guess.

    As a hobby I write and record music in a little home studio in my house.
  16. I am a Chef.  Started cooking at age 14 when I first got into the business, went to culinary school and now work as a dietary director for a nursing home.
  17. Fire Investigator. Expert on smoke [​IMG]
  18. Been retired 2 years now but I retired as an Aerospace Supplier Quality Assurance manager.

    I miss it like a hole in my head.

    I'm a writer, producing copy for both advertising and editorial. I write on automotive topics for the New York Times, and spout off on energy topics for some utility company publications. Right now I'm scripting how-to videos for AutoZone and writing an 80th anniversary book for Nissan. I thought I was retired a few years ago after spending 25 years in ad agencies. Now I'm working every day, but I don't know what I would do otherwise. Going to put some chicken thighs in the smoker shortly!
