I am originally from the Memphis area where I acquired my deep love for BBQ. I lived in Southern Colorado for about 10 years where I acquired my deep love for Mexican food. I have lived in Las Vegas for 20 years now. I work Security in a Casino & Hotel. My favorite cookbooks are: Todd Wilbur?s ?Top Secret Restaurant Recipes? series and everything by Steven Raichlen. I hope to someday attend Steven Raichlen?s ?BBQ U?. I like to BBQ, dabble with photography, attempt to get things to grow in the desert and joke around with my friends. I love Hickory smoked pork (BBQ). I hate BBQ?d beef and mesquite. Mesquite is an overgrown weed and should never be used for cooking!
