My mother became ill when I was 5 so I had to learn to cook for myself. As a small child I was always fascinated with food. From tortillas to Prime rib I was always cooking something! TV was my babysitter and I learned a lot from Graham Kerr and Julia Child. My father was a very industrious man but he also had a passion for food and with one arm could cook up a full meal in half an hour! I guess he was the original Rachel Ray. My father also loved to fish and once a year we made our trip to Camano Island in Washington State to get our fish fix for the year. When he was a small boy he wandered down to the Fishtrap creek where the local Indian tribe the "Nooksacks" were gathering, smoking and drying their fish for the year. This is where I was first introduced to smoking foods. There are lots of recipes for smoking salmon but my favorite is still plain salt, smoke and salmon.

In 2009 I discovered the Pacific Northwest Barbeque Association and became active as a certified BBQ Judge. I soon found a wealth of wonderful people who have the same passions as I do. Good food! As I was spending a lot of time weekends with nothing to do I decided to make good use of our time (yes my wonderful wife is a great helper) and open a BBQ supply business. WOW! I'm so glad I did! I am very excited to carry these lines of products. It's not a problem to sell items that you believe and have faith in.
