    Is there anyone you attribute the most to thank for your cooking skills? A relative perhaps, author or TV chef?
    I have liked to cook since I was a teenager and learned how to make spaghetti sauce from my grandmother and made it to impress girls. It worked.
    But I have two people to thank for my "real skills"...and that would be Emeril Lagasse and Alton Brown.
    Emeril for inspiring me to truly love good food and using the right ingredients. And Alton Brown for my technical skills

    I really dont have any single person that influenced me.
    It was the challenge and the time spent with the Wife and Friends while cooking that inspired me.
    I guess I would have to say my love of cooking really started when I went from grilling,to real offset BBQ pit smoking.
    The challenge of taking one of the hardest meats to master on the BBQ,the brisket,and spending up to 24 hours tending it and the fire appeals to me.
    After a few years with a BBQ cook off team I realized I wanted branch out and try the kitchen....and to be honest I was getting tired of BBQ.
    From there on out I was hooked.

    My own palate and Joy of Cooking. My mom was a pretty so-so cook. When I got out in the world and started having food that really tasted GOOD, I got curious how to cook it. That cookbook teaches you how to boil water, and if you pay attention and follow instructions exactly, you can COOK. I love it.
