I have loved to cook since High School and entered and won my very first competition in 1998 with my trailer mounted smoker. I aquired and refurbished a custom bbq pit and that got me intrigued in the design aspect and how the firebox performed and affected the results.
In 2003, I started building firepit grills as a hobby. I began building them counter-top height so they could be used as outdoor grills that you could stand while using. At the same time I began to play around with metal design and enjoyed creating western art.
People began to talk and my hobby turned into a business spread by word of mouth. I knew I had turned a corner when I was contacted by a Veterinarian in Georgia who wanted a smoker with a full kitchen and a walk-in cooler on a 3-axle trailer.
And since 2009 when the natural gas industry took a downward turn, I began to manufacture other items – mainly oil field related. But I have always enjoyed the creative side and western art, so within the last year, I have concentrated on the custom creation of bbq grills, firepits, picnic tables and other decor such as wine racks, wine glass holders and birdfeeders.
