Hello From Ontario, Canada

Hi! My name is Russ. I am a super grilling, bbq and smoking fanatic. I have to grill in the snow now due to the weather here but I just returned from a 2 month trip across the southern USA (traveled from Key West to San Fran) and tried some amazing food along the way!

Looking forward to getting to know a lot of you,

Russ

Thanks for the warm welcome! It was a good trip indeed. It actually started with us living in Mexico for 6 months so the last year has been pretty cool.

I am happy to get back to my own cooking equipment though....

Yeah, I guess you would -- and you probably have more than me.

Whassup Russ? Good Day from the Big Smoke.

We have basically avoided the snow this year so far, outside of about 10cm. London and Lucan received up to 1.5 meters, and the highway from London to Sarnia had people stranded for over 24 hours this past week. It's been nuts so far, but Toronto has avoided it for the most part.

I look forward to seeing some pictures of up North.

Cheers

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have never been to BC (it is about 3,000 miles from here) but it is on my list for this summer. Glad to hear you had a good experience - likewise I spent a few months traveling across the US and were treated well everywhere we went.

Russ

Hey, nice to hear from you. I spent 15 years in the GTA so I know what a Toronto winter is like - not much snow to speak of usually. I am near North Bay (3 hours north of T.O. and there is around 2-3 feet of the white stuff here).

Ya I looked you up on the map. I spent a lot of time in Muskoka as a kid. I'm glad you have the snow. I've reached that age where I don't want any more of it.
