It started out as a hobby to learn about electronics. (Programming electronics for 3 decades actually does not teach you much about designing electronics.) As my skills developed, things changed. After multiple attempts, I convinced my former business partner (my brother Michael) there was a potential business opportunity related to the device I was making, a temperature controller for a smoker. The rest, as they say, is history, if I finish this post.
Here is a pic from the beginning. This is my friend Steve who inspired the project by telling me he was thinking about buying one of the existing commercial products when I was looking for something to make. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed a lot of delicious BBQ while testing. He’s customer #1 and every Flame Boss is designed mostly for him; all other customers hopefully like what he likes.
See our website FlameBoss.com for recent pics.
And that’s why this blog has been silent for so long and will probably be silent for a while longer. Haven’t quit the day job yet. Until next time…
