Chef Stevie's Recipes

I love to cook.  I mean, I REALLY LOVE to cook.

I probably have 4 linear feet of cookbooks on the bookshelf at home. 
I enjoy reading cookbooks in my spare time, and my cooking friends and I exchange recipes
via email quite often.

According to my wife Linda , I really do make a really big mess in the kitchen most of the time,
but I'm trying to be better about that.

My passion is BBQ and smoking, being trained specifically in BBQ and smoking by
8 time national champion Chris Marks,
but I've been known to dabble in other culinary areas, including Italian food and some baking.

Here are some recipes that are family and friend favorites for you to enjoy.  Check back often and compare recipes, as I'm always updating them.
