With the exception on a few items (I make a mean omelet) I am a disaster in the kitchen. My cooking efforts are focused on the barbecue. I bought my first cooking thermometer a few years ago and that has saved me on more occasions than I care to admit.
My favorite things to cook
Anything on the barbecue.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving. Sometimes I barbecue one turkey and my wife cooks another one in the oven. Sad to say that most people prefer her turkey...more leftovers for me!
My cooking triumphs
I recently barbecued a perfect set of rib-eyes. It was a simple meal (salt, pepper and hot coals) which is one reason I felt so triumphant.
My cooking tragedies
Unintentionally turning barbecue chicken into chicken jerky....and being too stubborn to toss it in the trash and start over.
