    Hi Everyone

    I'm Jon, long time lurker.  I work a 9-5 in software.  In a previous life, I worked in biology (tissue culture).

    Nights and weekends, I'm a BBQ guy.  I judge competitive bbq and have small dinner parties.  I'm more of a butcher than any type of chef.  I cut up a whole hog a month ago and I'm getting fat from the homemade bacon, sausage, and bbq.

    I guess you can best judge someone by what they keep in their fridge and freezer.  At the moment I have in various mason jars:  sourdough starter, kimchi, rendered duck fat, bacon fat, ghee, chicken stock, lamb stock, chorizo, merguez, maple bacon, homemade mustard, various pickles.

    I'm a pretty simple guy;  I like ingredients I understand.  I like hot fire and sharp knives.
