Adam Howe – Flame Gorilla ©

Hello everyone! Here it is, all about me, Adam Howe, and how I started Flame Gorilla. I know most of you are probably just on my site to find out about fire pits, grilling, roasting and the like, but I thought some of you would like to know a bit about me and how I came to build this site. Others of you are wondering how you can do the same with your personal interests and hobbies. Well, read on if you are interested. Enjoy the site, and please feel free to contact me if you have any comments or questions!

All About Me

I have many interests, and food and cooking just happens to be one of my favorites. I’m not a professional chef… oh, wait, I guess now I could say I am a professional chef since I do make some money off this website which is related to my cooking. But I digress, I’m not a professional chef in the traditional sense. But I am passionate about cooking and food and am quite good at it (if I do say so myself!).

My parents used to call me Da Vinci because I was so interested, even passionate, about so many things. Besides the IT that I studied in school, I am also an avid painter and music lover. But one of the most important things in my life has always been food! I don’t mean food being important like it is for everyone, sure we all need to eat to survive! What I mean is that I have a passion for good food and that has led to several other hobbies. For one, I’ve always liked to cook. I fancy myself something of a gourmet chef (although not professionally, as I mentioned above) or just cook up new fun things. However, of all my interests related to food and cooking, one of my favorite pastimes is cooking with fire, outdoors, grilling, cooking on a fire pit, in the fireplace, wherever. I love cooking on an open fire, over coals, etc. There is something so primal about it and, besides being fun, it creates great, uniquely flavored food.

Well, with my passion for food and cooking and my love of everything to do with fire, I thought the Flame Gorilla © would be a great concept. While there are a lot of websites out there devoted to cooking and even a fair amount on grilling, there are few non-commercial websites with good information about fire pits and cooking on a fire pit or in your fireplace. So the idea fell together and I started writing. Pretty soon I too had a pretty nice site going (if I do say so myself!) and was getting more and more traffic each day.

Well, I guess that’s it! Enjoy my site, Jermhenfred Grasparil’s Flame Gorilla © (in case you weren’t paying attention)! If you have interest in creating your own website, then I wish you all the luck.

Cheers!
