BACKDRAFT BAR-B-Q CTYear Started: 2014
ANTONIO OLIVE JR
I've always loved cooking and barbequing and eating barbeque. I started smoking with a propane vertical smoker then I purchased my Rec Tec pellet smoker and I was hooked. My oldest daughter Nicole competes with me. This year we upgraded to a Myron Mixon V33 Gravity Feed smoker, Rec Tec Mini and a 8.5'x20' Freedom Trailer.
