Uncle Smokey wishes to maintain his secret identity. He is an urban homesteader and a self-confessed “old curmudgeon” in his fifth decade (and he thinks that’s old!).

No – his name is not because he smokes tobacco – it’s because he often smells of campfire smoke.


Smokey makes a lot of bachelor meals, quick yet tasty. The reason we twisted his arm to come on board is because he is our outdoor chef! He uses gas and charcoal grills, wood-fired smoker, and campfire – all with great skill. When he sets something out in the Dutch oven – well, we are all in for a treat. He also makes his own sausage, so be on the lookout for some savory treats.
