My name is Ken Hunting. My wife, Charla, and I own and operate Gourmet Grills. We are a Traeger Wood Pellet Grill dealer located in Phoenix, Arizona.

Up until about 8 years ago, I thought I didn't even like BBQ. We did some grilling on a cheap gas grill – hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. But this was not much fun. Out at my sister's in Washington state, I met a caterer who was cooking on a Traeger grill. My wife says my eyes lit up and she knew we would have one. She had no idea at that time that we would be buying them by the truckload.

I loved my first Traeger so much I thought others might like them also. So that's when we bought our first truckload of grills.

One day some guys who were really into BBQ came to see my Traeger grills. They told me about a cooking class by Paul Kirk and about competition cooking. That's how I learned what real BBQ is. We have taken classes from Paul Kirk, Chris Lilly, Brent and Kim Walton, and learned a lot from some of the top names in BBQ.

We now have a good sized collection of trophies and have been seen on the Food Network, local TV in Los Angeles, and had a picture in the Fresno Bee newspaper cooking on our Pig grill.

Give us a call. I would love to talk BBQ with you!

P.S. We now compete under the team name One Smoke Over the Line. Stop in and say hi at the next competition.
