Barbeque: My Introduction

One of my earliest (and fondest) memories of outdoor cooking/barbecuing is during the Blizzard of ’78 when my Mom grilled some steaks for dinner on a second story, unsheltered porch using a Weber Smokey Joe®.

My first grill was a slightly used charcoal grill from my step Father-In-Law. From there, I pursued barbeque..(Texas style like that familiar to by Dear Wife). My equipment then became a New Braunfels Silver Smoker.

My first queing experiences were how to build a fire, how to maintain temperature, brisket, pork butt and ribs.

There were edible and less than edible results that all contributed to a well rounded background to build on.

During the day I work in the Internet Marketing field but, that’s not what this blog is about. It’s about good food, good times, friends and family all mixed together with a certain amount of craft, pride and creativity.

  1. Hey Rob, I'm kinda like you, in that I do IM, but love to bbq, so pushed my efforts in that direction. I live out on the West Coast, where the bbq is more "haute" than "hot" and I prefer to let the meat do the talking, rather than the sauce! Maybe we can swap some guest blog spots and work it through the Smoke Ring…check out my site at
