Hey y`all, I am an Allrecipes Allstar Brand Ambassador (a volunteer position), and I am not compensated for my work with Allrecipes.com. Products received from advertisers are only used for experience-based reviews . I am retired. Love South Carolina, was born here and thats where I`ll stay. Married. We love spending time with family and taking Minnie vacations. I started cooking at a very young age to help my Mom around the house. I love using my grills and smokers for all kinds of meats, veggies, ect. I have just started getting into competition cooking and its a learning thing for me but something I love. Allrecipes has inspired me to become a better cook , there are really fantastic people on this site and their willingness to share is something you don't find every day!
