My favorite things to cook
I like to BBQ, grill and (especially) to smoke foods. I also enjoy baking breads, croutons, and biscuits. I try to preserve some of my gardening efforts by pickling, Jellies or wine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The last few years I have smoked a turkey and an additional meat for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
I have an excellent record of making Chicago Italian roast beef that is supberb. I also do some fantastic smoked ribs and pulled pork.
