Growing up it was very much a beige oven based meal which pushed me into learning how to cook more exotic dishes. I have a love for most food especially Thai and BBQ which led me to create the Smoke Guys website. I hope you find my reviews and guides helpful and I'm always open to hearing any suggestions you may have.
