My name is Bill, and I am a newcomer to the BBQ world... I have always been a fan of the eating part, don't get me wrong, but having some food over the past couple of months from my dad's Traeger has me interested in starting this myself!
I live in Salida, CA (Northern California, in the Modesto area) with my wife Nicole and our two English Bulldogs Zoe and Zeus. We also have a baby boy on the way that will be arriving in February.
One of my passions is cigars - in fact, I moderate a cigar forum, StogieChat, and have what my wife would call an excessive collection...
I am also active in my local Masonic Lodge, and am a Shriner and member of the Scottish Rite. We do a lot of work in the community that is very rewarding.
Oh, and I am a bit of a coffee person and have roasted coffee as well, though I don't do that so much any more getting ready for the family and all.
I will have a lot of newb questions, and hope that you will be gentle!
Thanks for having me!
