Hot & fast or low & slow?
Low and slow. I just like that satisfaction of making amazing food that takes hours to pull off.
Fat side up or fat side down?
Fat side down, it allows me to build a better bark while the meat is facing up.
Your most used or favorite ingredient?
Rosemary. I love the smell and flavor, it is a very versatile ingredient.
Best cooking lesson you learned by trial and error?
Brisket. It is the hardest meat to pull off. It definitely takes a few cooks to get a decent brisket.
Are you a sweets or savory/salty person?
Definitely have a sweet tooth.
