I'm a "damn Yankee". Was stationed in Savannah,GA. in the late 70's and loved it so much I stayed.
My favorite things to cook
I love to grille anything! Also learned to use a smoker (water type) and do love the flavor of smoked meat! I also make prety good BBQ pork, and Brunswick stew.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All the family gathered at Grammy & Gramp's house for thanksgiving and Christmas, and just the smells and the laughter and the noise of the women in the kitchen, those are great memories.
My cooking triumphs
The day I got my brother to eat some smoked pork shoulder and call it good and, then go back for more, and also take some home! You see my brother is a Profesional Chef, and he thinks that BBQ and smoked meat is for cavemen and "Rednecks"! YES I'm a Redneck!
My cooking tragedies
TOOO many to list! The last was my "hockey puck" biscuts. (bad flour,,right?)
