How long have you been cooking?
I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED COOKING ON THE GRILL BUT IT ALL WENT TO ANOTHER LEVEL ABOUT 8 YEARS AGO WHEN I WON A TRAEGER FROM A CONTEST AT WORK. THE REST IS HISTORY.
How did you get interested or introduced to cooking?
ONE OF THE OWNERS OF THE COMPANY I WORK FOR BROUGHT IN SOME SMOKED RIBS TO WORK ONE DAY AND THEY WERE AMAZING! I COULDN'T BELIEVE HE COOKED SOMETHING THAT GOOD AT HOME. AT THAT MOMENT I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED TO DO. I NEEDED TO GET A SMOKER.
What is your best food memory?
COVID HAS BEEN DIFFICULT FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT WAYS. THIS PAST YEAR I SMOKED A BUNCH OF PORK AND WE DELIVERED DINNER TO RANDOM FAMILY IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD THAT WE FELT COULD USE A LIFT. IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR ME AS WELL AS OUR KIDS.
What is your favorite PS Product and why?
NOW THIS IS A TOUGH QUESTION! I'M GOING TO GO WITH THE BACK YARD BETTER BURGER. THIS IS SO GOOD ON A BURGER AND A LOT OF OTHER BEEF CUTS. THE FLAVOR IS AMAZING AND MAKES FOR AN AMAZING CRUST WITH A GOOD SEAR. NOTORIOUS P.I.G. IS A CLOSE SECOND.
What would you want as your last meal?
A PERFECTLY COOKED TRI TIP WITH MASHED POTATOES AND GRAVY.
What dish/meal do you make on repeat?
I COOK A LOT OF TRI TIPS AS WELL AS STEAKS. I LOVE A GOOD RIB EYE.
