Meet David

Meet David

I met David over 20 years ago at a small-town printing company in Ahoskie, North Carolina where we both worked.

Long story short, do you believe in love at first sight? The day I met him my life began.

Robert Brault said: “What we find in a soul mate is not something wild to tame but something wild to run with.” There could be no truer words. Before David Allen Spivey came into my life, I was hidden in a shell, only existing. After I met him, started living life. I don’t even want to know where I’d be without him.

David and Debbie wed at Graceland Wedding Chapel, in Las Vegas, Nevada

I married my “bestest” friend and the love of my life on April 27th, 2013 at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada. I’m really not sure why it took us so long to say “I do”, but that doesn’t matter. I wouldn’t change a thing, because the best things in life aren’t things, for “I have found the one whom my soul loves” – Song of Solomon 3:4

We’re being silly in this video, but we take our recipes very seriously. 

If you love to cook and enjoy eating good food, you’re in the right place! David and I love to cook and eat, but even more, we love sharing our recipes with you from our mountain kitchen and outside on the grill and smoker. We want to help you cook, smoke, and grill the best food you’ve ever made. Thank you for following along with us on our food adventures. 

Let’s have some fun together!

David The Pitmaster Of The Mountain Kitchen

David loves to grill just about anything, but he really loves to grill pork. He’s not a seasonal griller, he grills all year round. I guess you could say he’s kind of like the mailman… No matter if it rains or snows, he must grill!

David’s not a Professional Pitmaster, nor does he claim to be. He simply has a passion for firing up the grill or smoker to cook about anything to share with you!

Yes, David has always loved grilling food, but how he got into smoking meat was completely by accident. You can learn more about David’s hobby became a passion for smoking and grilling by reading his story, “TRASH TREASURE SMOKER“.

David’s Equipment

Grilling and smoking go beyond what type of grill, smoker, or fuel you use. BBQ grill and smoker accessories are worth investing in too. They make your life easier and can improve your whole bbq experience. Some BBQ tools and accessories can even improve the way your food tastes.

We would like to share David’s Must-Have List of BBQ Grill and Smoker Accessories with you to help you enjoy grilling and smoking and experience each time you fire up your grill or smoker.
