     Jack loves to cook. After a 30 years career caring for premature babies, Jack decided to indulge his passion for cooking good food in a niche market not well known to Alaska, truly authentic Southern BBQ. He went south to educate himself in BBQ with renowned pit master Mike Mills of 17th Street BBQ. 4000 hwy miles later the Turnagain Arm Pit BBQ was set up and started smoking meat in Indian and Anchorage.
