Back in my wasted youth, I worked as a short order cook, a line cook and a dishwasher. These days, I earn my money leading a R&D group in the technology world. I still cook however. In addition to keeping a smile on the faces of my family and friends, I do occasional (8-10 a year) events. A typical event might have 60 to a few hundred guests. I'm really good on soups and gumbo but also enjoy outdoor cooking. I'm the go-to guy for hog roasts in my community. I showed up here looking for an answer to a specific question but found a community that seems to be friendly, positive and focused on food. I'm planning to stick around.
