New from KC

Hi everybody. I'm from Kansas City, Mo and I have been around a grill and a bbq grill since I was little, although we only seemed to bbq turkeys and turkey legs for the holiday season. I'm currently in school full time, for my Paramedics license, and working full time so my bbq time has been cut down to zero. I do grill any chance I can find it, in fact I may do it day even with the chance of freezing rain. On occasion I have had the opportunity to join a bbq team and learned tons from doing so. Once school is over in May I intend on working on my bbq'ing skills, a process I will definitely keep you guys posted on.

Yeah I like the fire side a lot more than the medical side, but it was out of desperation for a job. The fire emt market seems to be saturated around here, and I had many chiefs telling me to get my paramedic license, so thats what I did. Probably not the smartest career move though, to many medics have a big head I intend on doing my best to not become that way. I'll be and sure to get ya'll some photos.

Greetings,
Having that paramedic license will not hurt you. Once you get that, keep taking fire classes also. Do some rescue also. You have just made yourself more marketable. Throw some business classes in there and when that body gets tired you have something else to fall back on. Especially if the department will pay for the classes you are taking.

I will take that advice to heart, thank you.
