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.
