View Full Version : Hello from Ripon, CA

Small town smoker about an hour south of Sacramento and an hour east of San Francisco.

Moved here from KC, MO many years ago and have been searching all over CA for good 'Q' and finding very little worth talking about so I bought a pellet smoker from a warehouse store as I decided I could do better and guess what? I was right. Truth be told, I have read a lot of great info on this forum and a few others and making really good food has become pretty easy.

I have lurked and read your words of encouragement to so many so I should just say thanks and that I am grateful to all who have shared their knowledge so freely.

I don't do competition. Doubt I ever will. I just enjoy feeding the family and friends and teasing the neighbors! That's how I roll although the neighbors are starting to just come over when I am out back and they usually weasel something away to their house. Especially the guy that brings me a beer. I do have a price and it is apparently a beer! :becky:
