As a tech exec working in the heart of Silicon Valley, I’ve found the low-and-slow of BBQ to be the perfect antidote to the daily grind and pace of my work life. There’s no better antidote to stress than a weekend spent smoking a brisket or a few racks of ribs. Then, of course, the best part is getting to share the result with family and friends. I love understanding the “science” behind the cook and, being a techie, I enjoy figuring out if new gadgets can give me a better cook. But most of all, I just love eating bbq!
