Hi all! My name is Eric and I moved to Texas in June 2020 to complete a pharmacy practice residency as a licensed pharmacist. After moving to Texas, I was able to obtain my first smoker and the rest is history! I love to spend free time outside in the yard smoking all different kinds of foods with my wife (also a pharmacist) and two dogs. I love to take traditional dishes and put my own BBQ style on them while trying to keep them “relatively” healthy. I hope you enjoy!
