Paying it Forward

Let’s be real, a lot of these kids have legitimate reasons to be focused on their own situations, these kids that will never have a “normal” life. But I have seen some of the coolest and most selfless things coming out of these kids.

It’s Barbecue Time!

If we are going to move forward with talking about barbecue, we need to straighten something out. Barbecue is not a cookout or a party. Those are called… well, cookouts and parties. Barbecue is not cooking device. Those are called grills and smokers. Barbecue is a method of cooking and the food that results from that cooking technique.

One Year

Two days ago marked one year since my first blog post. It’s hard to believe it has been one whole year. To be honest, I didn’t think I would make it this far.
