If your new at Barbecuing or Smoking or even a Pitmaster we will be share stories, recipes, tools to make your meats to come out perfect. It is mainly to share experiences and make your family gatherings memorable.

Where I am coming from                    

Like many of you. My family is the most important thing in my life. We will do anything for the people we love. So I realize that working hard and advancing at work would be beneficial to my family. Also, new I had to balance that with quality time with the family, so you support them in all they do. Spend time with them, help point them in the right direction.

Found out one most important time with family is when we gather at the dinner table. My wife Katie did most of the cooking during the week. On the weekends I took over the roll. Loved BBQ, started with charcoal grilling, then went to gas grill. Both of these methods produced great meals on the weekend. But my girls have many stories of Pops singeing his eyebrows or the taste of lighter fluid, as I said memorable stories. So that is a little about me, sure many of you can relate to it .



When I first started Barbecuing there was no google or internet for that matter. Yes I am 61-year young, or old as my girls would say. So spent a lot time and money on trial and error at first. There were many of weekend dinners that my wife would say girls “Dad is taking us out to dinner”. Or the meal should have been at 5pm end at 7pm because charcoal would not light, didn’t stay hot long enough to cook the steak or chicken or ran out of gas. Now if my wife even saw a little pink in here chicken off to Wendy’s we go.

So here we would like to help people avoid that and share not only my experience but yours as well. To help the newbies at Barbecuing, learn from some more seasoned Pitmasters. Share things I have learned or found from other sources.

It is very confusing all the different methods of Barbecuing. Here we will explore them, so you can find one that fits your needs. After many years, I discovered Smoking, did a lot of looking on best method to smoking (BBQ). I went with Pellet smoker, we will discuss this in detail in the future of SMOKEY PELLETS.

So I am starting this journey, hope you will join us and share your experiences. And use this all to create some wonderful times with your families and friends.



As child like most of us, when Dad barbecued we thought he was the best. I remember my first time thinking no big deal this is easy, how wrong I was. Then the thought of having to BBQ gave me ANXIETY ATTACKS. We like to save you from that, by helping pick the method of BBQ or Smoker. Helping learn how to use them to produce the best meals for your family and friends.

There are many techniques and tools that will help you accomplish the task of creating a memorable BBQ meal. They will make it easier and take the guess work out cooking different meats. All meats have a different internal tempura to insure they are cooked properly. Here at SMOKEY PELLETS we will discuss these things in detail and in terms that anyone can understand.

One of the best things I enjoy about Smoking is how you can enhance the flavor of the meat your cooking by using different kinds of wood ( oak, pecan, apple etc.). We will talk about this in detail throughout our journey.

Most of all create new friends, have fun BBQ and Smoking. And enrich our time with family and friends
